We have action in the other basin!

I know, it’s been very quiet in the reporting stakes, mainly because nothing has been happening!
I took a few pictures yesterday but the camera decided to do a wobbly and we had to re-format the disc so lost everything on it, as despite Hubby’s valiant efforts, he couldn’t retrieve anything.
Luckily I’d already downloaded the pictures of my Mum so they are safe.

Today when I took the dog out at 8.30, I went armed with the camera and a new chip, and took these.
Next week should be interesting, as this crane
big-cranehas to go on this raft.
raftand you may remember it’s quite a long way down!
before-and-nowThe original picture was taken in November so the raft is where the pontoons were and the crane is to the right of where I stood when I took it.

Will keep you posted!

    Oooh How ever will they do it? 🙂

    • Hubby reckons they will bring the raft as close to the bank as they can, then use the arm of the crane to balance and gradualy inch down on to it. Just one little snag at the moment……. the raft isn’t big enough as they have only built half of it. It’s March next week and there is still so much to do. We can’t see it being anywhere near finished for the start of the season, so they will start losing money as they cannot moor the boats, visiting or otherwise, and several are still out on the river three or four abreast.
