Pewsey Wharf

We, or rather John, arrived at Pewsey Wharf yesterday afternoon. When I finished work I drove to meet him.

Although the weather got quite cold towards the end of the afternoon he enjoyed his single handed cruise up here. He is getting quite a dab hand at the swing bridges on the Kennet and Avon canal between here and Devizes!

After our meal we popped into the Waterfront Bar and were first in! However we promised to draw customers in and so we did! It is great to see familiar faces again.

Today we had various jobs to do. John continued to convert the TV and satellite box into cruising mode. He also sorted out his box of bits and bobs in the saloon and disconnected the land line phones and cable. I did a bit of cleaning.

Whilst John went off to the village to give blood I baked - a lemon drizzle cake, choc chip muffins and some bread. I was a little tired after all that! When he got back we filled up with water - the tap here is very fast!

The rain came and now it is pretty windy. I have to say it is great to feel the boat moving around. One of the changes now we are on the cut!

Beyond the Bar and Bistro are the moorings owned by the Waterfront, room for about 8 boats breasted up. The Bistro does an excellent Boaters Breakfast and both walkers and boaters return again and again.
