Mercia Marina Again
It's seems strange that in three years of boat tests I'd never been to Mercia Maria before last month, and yet the very next one was also there. Today's boat was very different from the one a couple of weeks ago, and we turned left out of the marina, going down to Stenson and back, to make sure the photos look different. The sun came out, too.
The whole area is dominated by the disused cooling towers of the old power station. Looking the other way from the marina, you can see the rather less impressive (but operationla) chimneys of the Toyota factory.
I've come back to Briar Rose, and Adrian is coming up this evening after work.
