The unexpectedly hot bank holiday weather made a trip on the River Ouse an essential evening entertainment this weekend. Five of us climbed aboard "Blue Moon" and motored upstream to Linton Lock. We were treated to a peaceful trip on mirror-like water, waving to other boaters and guests from a wedding party at the Nidd confluence. The entertainment continued upstream with frequent sightings of geese, ducks, owls and sand martins. The return trip in the dark was equally rewarding when the stars came out and the planet Venus rose up over the horizon. At journey's end, we were greeted by the welcoming lights of Redhouse Landing.
