Marsworth Saturday 6 August 2016

I think the pound may have even been lower this morning and asDSCF5125 you can see we were parallel parked last night.DSCF5126

We were away by half nine but a boat had gone by ahead of us but a boat came down behind them. We caught them up at Ivinghoe bottom as the boat they were sharing with caught up with another and left them. The were 2 Australian girls who moor at Cowroast and working to become live aboard’s at some point in the future. They were great to lock with and we went all the way to Seabrook Swing Bridge with them. The pound between Ivinghoe locks was barely 3 feet deep right in the centre of the channel.

This camp site looks quite inviting with its wooden huts for living in, better than canvas any day of the week. I think its known as Glamping.DSCF5132

We stopped for lunch just before Dunstable Boat Club where we found a space just long enough for us. After bit of a break and ice creams from Pitstone Wharf we carried on to the Marsworth pair where we were joined by another boat just out for the weekend. We only went as far as the start of the Marsworth moorings where there are rings to moor to. We will be here now until the Gandsons are changed round tomorrow morning sometime.
