Don Gorge Discovery Day...and a Cruise on the River

A very pleasant surprise today, an unexpected short cruise on the River Don.

I went to Sprotbrough with Marshall, my support worker, as we usually do most weeks on a Thursday - just to eat our sandwiches and go for a short walk along the river or up into the woods. However, today we were pleasantly surprised to find out that it was the Don Gorge Discovery Day, and this year free cruises on the 'Wyre Lady' were being offered. Our timing was perfect; we arrived at 11:45, just in time for the twelve o'clock sailing to Conisbrough and back.

When we arrived back on dry land we were able to visit the stalls and exhibitions...and also go inside the lock house to have a look at the equipment.
