Ely 28th December

For our last row of 2019 we took Ouse Rewit over to Ely. The roads were clear so it was an easy run over. We set off from the slipway and headed left along the the river out of the town and along besides the railway we saw many walkers (a couple of whom sang to us!) a couple of trains a Heron high up in a tree a large gaggle of Canada Geese lots of fisher men and a few slide seat rowers. We rowed further than on previous visits and got some lovely views of the Cathedral and surrounding countryside we carried on past Cambridge university boathouse and all the way down to the Queen Adelaide Bridges. After stopping for the usual refreshments we set off back to base.
We then stopped for a cuppa and light lunch at The Peacock Tearoom. All in all we were in the boat for around 2 hours and clocked up just under 5 miles. Thank you mark for towing.
