Spring Summer Cruise 2014 ❸❼

Willington Winding Hole to Shobnal Marina

Overnight the weather was quite warm.

Morning: Bright sunshine soon had the temperature climbing. On our way by 09:30 stopping at the waterpoint at 'Tom's Moorings' to fill up with water.

Afternoon: Stopped for lunch and to do some shopping - then decided to stay for a few days. Spent some time fitting some new rope fenders. Relocated the anchor into the front locker - it could
be quite some time before we need to use the anchor again.
Evening: Spent some time in the warm sunshine photographing butterflies. Then the rains started and everything should be fresh by morning.
