As part of the master plan from management we have found time to travel down the Glasson branch and visit the docks area at the end of this branch – this little side journey helps to fill in the time necessary for a decent pumpout – I think it also fills in some time to check out a couple more pubs at the end of the line – can’t so no to that.
But for today it was a nice day for a cruise – initially it was cloudy and we felt a little chilly, but it didn’t take long before the sun was out and we were feeling quite warm.
We had set aside some time to stop and do some admiring of the magnificent Lune Aquaduct over the Lune River – opened in 1797 it has stood the test of time – not just a practical engineering feat, it shows a architectural style of some magnitude.

|it also makes a nice backdrop - these two just had to be in |
|Lancaster and the castle and church|
|sunny or what !|
|Just a bit concerned about the cows suggesting rain|
|the towpath was still quite muddy - so hopefully it will dry|
