Tuesday 14 Aug 2012 March Town Mooring

We set off from home having to go via Gt Yarmouth to settle our account with the vet and then Caister to pay for this weeks grass cutting at mums old house under an overcast sky, sure enough we had a bit of rain west of Norwich. However when we arrived at our moorings it was sunny and about 23° C.

We backed out a little after 2-30 we would have been away slightly earlier but there was another Narrowboat coming down the cut and there was no point sitting on his fender. When we arrived at March needless to say he was in our favourite mooring beside the park, he did invite us alongside but there was only one boat on the Town moorings so we went on to there.

This is the first time we have ever been on the boat without Magic so its a bit strange, not having to think where we moor so that he can get off or looking down in the back cabin to se him laying there. I expect it will take us a couple of days to get use to the idea.
On the way I rang Paul at salters Lode to check locking times. We can go out tomorrow at 5 pm to cross to Denver or at 7am on Thursday to go up the New Bedford river. I think I will try that as it will see us in Hollywell by 3pm.

As we came through March we spotted Lord Toulouse moored at The Middle Level Waterman's Club for a couple of day. Its not often you see a Narrowboat moored on the outside of a couple of cruisers.a smallDSCF9504
As I write this the temperature is up to 26°C

Yes I took him to the vets Monday morning. We had to go home Sunday because of how he was last Fridan at the Dog in a Doublet.
