A long drive yesterday, up to Overwater Marina at Audlem for a boat test, then back again. It's a lovely marina which we've boated past many times, but never been in. An indication of how good it is, is that it's very nearly full.
Between April and October, there's a weekend water taxi service from this landing at the marina, to the bottom lock at Audlem, so people can take advantage of the village's pubs and shops. The fare is a donation to the RNLI, and I'm told that last year the marina raised over £6000.
Like all marinas, though, this one is in a pretty exposed spot, so getting the test boat back into its berth with a stiff crosswind blowing proved rather tricky.
