The adventures of Gary and Carolyn living aboard and continuously cruising the uk canals and rivers on narrowboat Inca
Wednesday, 5 June 2013
We stayed at Grafton Regis on Tuesday and had a walk around the village.And as usual it was straight to the churchyard to find me a plot .
I do not think i would like a plot here Carolyn (The grass is far too long) .There is not much else in the village apart from a pub on the main road . We didn't go in as yet again i forgot to put any money in my pocket. So it was back to Inca and a bit of fishing.
And here it is. A 2 ounce roach .........See i can catch fish .
After all the excitement of catching a fish we moved on to another rural mooring about a mile from our last one.
We got the fishing rod out again and soon this happened . The most important fish ever caught....Curly's first ever fish...........Well done Curly .
We ended up with a bag full of small roach. (Although it was a very small bag.)
After lunch we went for a walk along the towpath. Curly asked "why are there grooves on this canal bridge". The answer is .When horses used to tow boats the rope from the horse to the boat used to rub the side of the bridge. And after many year's and thousand's of horses passing through it made grooves in the bridge. Wow said Curly...... Well maybe not.
