Torksey

Yet another day of unbroken sunshine, but this time with a chilly wind to accompany it. We had planned a late cooked breakfast today, but that didn’t work out. On the river the only stopping places are at locks. The first one was too early. The lock keeper at the next lock told us that if we carried straight on without stopping then we could just catch the tide to stop overnight at Torksey. So we pressed on and breakfast turned into a sandwich lunch.
We are now on the scary tidal Trent, but it’s turned so far to not be scary at all.

The locks are big around here!
