Good Morning on Wide Water, Good Evening Berth

Sunday morning dawned bright and sunny. It was a lazy morning for us both; reading, catching up on emails and watching the Moto GP. After lunch the swans knocked at the swan doors for food. I gave them a crust as a bribe so I could photograph them! We winded and set off back towards Devizes.

Everyone was out enjoying the sunshine, walkers, anglers and boaters. It was really quite hot, no wind, lots of birds singing, in fact almost paradise! Friends and acquaintances waved and chatted to us as we passed, including narrowboat owners on “Sunseeker 2”, “Blake” and “Angels Payment”. We took our time and moored for dinner at the Bridge Inn, Horton; eating on board and then went in for a drink.

We arrived back at the Marina about 9.55pm. Thank goodness for light evenings. It took us about an hour to moor, hook up power and BT, water up, empty the cassette and generally settle back into out berth. So back to work tomorrow for me and back to Cornwall for John. On Wednesday we both will be finally fully settled here and our "new life" begins in Devizes and on the Kennet and Avon canal.
