Weekend below Devizes

When we went to look in the basin on Saturday morning it was full and no room anywhere so we decided to stay put.   The moorings here say they are pub moorings (Black Horse) for 24 hours so I went to have a word with the Landlord and explained we would like to book for Sunday Lunch and stay a little longer on the moorings if that was OK.........he said they weren't pub moorings but BW' we decided to take a chance and have not been disturbed or asked to move on.   On Saturday evening we were the only boat here.
Anne & Keith left after coffee on Saturday having taken me to do a shop first.
We are moored right at the end away from the main pub seating so it has been very congenial.  Good for Barney to sit out, although we do have to keep a weather eye out that he does not decide to have a wander among the tables doing  a scrounge!   Plenty of good walking here...Today the weather improved.  We found St Peters Church this morning, very High Church with lots of incence and then Sunday lunch at the pub. There were a few more boat movements today but we have been surprised at how quiet it is.
Onward again tomorrow.
