On the River Avon

After coming out of the Kennet & Avon Canal we turned right and went upstream towards the Pultneney Weir.
Before turning round and mooring just below Churchill Bridge, not far from the centre of town and Sainsbury's. We moored for the evening, it rained! In the evening we went to 'The Raven Inn' for a pie, mash & a pint. Raven Gold - lovely!

Sunday morning we set off downstream...
Under the Victoria Suspension Bridge, which is now being restored.
Under the slightly asymmetric looking Dolphin Bridge which takes its name from the adjacent Inn.
And into Weston Lock, the first lock you meet on the river...
Under New Bridge...
And on down the river to Saltford where we came across 'Talisman' which used to be moored above us at Church Lock. We could not visit because they were on the other side of the weir.

We returned to the same place that we had moored the night before, in preparation for re-entering the K&A and going to the top of the Widcombe Flight. In the evening David came to visit us and we all had a meal together. It was the first time David & Grandma had seen each other for ages.
