As if it wasn't noisy enough yesterday evening with the wind howling round the boat, once the rain started drumming on the roof if was difficult to hear yourself think. But a couple of hours after the rain started, the wind dropped to nothing.
This morning dawned dry, clear, and bright. I got in the car and headed up the M1 to Mercia Marina for a boat test. It was beautifully sunny all day, and not that cold either. It's a huge marina, but the boats are moored in small groups. I waved at Sanity Again, although I knew Bruce and Sheila weren't there.
After lunch in the cafe, I headed back to Briar Rose. I was almost 4pm when I got back to the marina, so almost dark. The fire had stayed in all day, so the boat was nice and warm. Tomorrow, I might even do a little boating.
