Objective was achieved as we arrived at Fenny to find our pick of mooring places. I have often thought how good it is that they have a launderette here at the Wharf Inn but have never availed myself of its capabilities...until now. With no 240 Volt power the washing machine is one of the losses. It was my first port of call after arrival. I cannot say it is cheap at £6.00 for a wash and £3.00 to dry but it was very useful today.
My second task was to light the first fire of the year. It was a dank cold day with no sunshine so it seemed the time was ripe. I had forgotten how cosy it makes the boat. The only problem is that when cooking it becomes too hot!!! Windows have to be opened!
