Goodbye to Black Bess- you have been fantastic

Monday, 9 July 2018

After only 3 weeks we said goodbye to BB today as her new owner is moving her to the River Nene/Ouse area.

My most favourite picture of BB was from our first long trip which included Llangollen in spring 2008. On that occasion we came down the Shroppie but turned right at Autherley Junction onto the Staffs and Worcs towards Stourport. The picture below has Anne on the helm with me doing the locks. The sun had suddenly come out and provided a lovely scene dominated by the red rock as she eased BB  beautifully into the lock.

It's now time just to say - its good night from me and goodnight from her.
