Last night, John and Jan came round for a drink after dinner, and we spent another enjoyable time chatting.
This morning was beautifully sunny. We set off at 9.15, pulling out past Jubilee, heading for Cosgrove Lock.
Because of moored boats and fishermen, the vast majority of this short trip was done on tickover.
It was pretty blustery at the marina, but at least the wind was blowing along the jetties, so spinning the boat and reversing into our berth went well. Just under an hour after we set off, we were tied up on our pontoon. We had a cup of tea, then Adrian packed up and headed down to his mum's.
This afternoon, I had a sleep for a couple of hours, ready for night shifts, which start tonight. I've already packed; before setting off for work, I'll prepare the boat for possible cold weather.
1.5 miles, 1 lock. (17 miles, 2 locks)
