Emma & Dave had planned an early departure from London but Dave became snowed under with work and they ended up leaving London in the late afternoon rush hour. However since it rained with us one and off all day they did not miss anything spectacular.
We ended up having a much later supper than our normal, but good fun all the same.......this of course led to much later night than we are used to!
Saturday we cruised back up towards Gloucester to shop at Sainsburys. Our plan for next week is to go back slowly towards Sharpness and provisions are not easy to come by at that end of the canal.
We then retraced our steps a little way to where we had seen some very congenial moorings. Unfortunately they turned out to be Long Term Moorings. The visitors mooring didn't look nearly as nice, and there were hardly any boats on the long term, and no boat names or paraphernalia on the shore so we took a chance and moored. No one disturbed us and we had a lovely evening....a Pimms evening!

|Please don't go...you let me up to a comfortable seat.|
