The marina Friday 9 March 2018

After the afternoon rain the evening was quite clear with a star light night. being clear the temperature actually dropped down well below zero in the early hours of the morning.

It was about half ten when we set off in the sunshine, the wind had died away to nothing overnight. and we made our way back to the marina. We only met two boats on the way, one at a bridge hole and one by a fallen tree, in both cases they gave way to us and waved me through. An hour and a half later we were backing into our mooring spot, again not the best of timing because just as I was turning inside the marina entrance anther boat entered the marina and had to it and wait in the entrance until I sorted my self out, space is a bit tight for turning at the end of the pontoons.

Once we were packed up we set off down the M6 as far as junction 2 where we turned off to Bascote. We are spending the night at the Old Toll House at the top of the Bascote Locks..
