Gloucester Friday 16 August 2019

Day : Friday
Date : 16 August 2019
Start : 1015
Finish : 1400hrs Gloucester

I have uploaded our proposed route to CanalPlanAC at https://canalplan.eu/journey/12083_8OnD9OH41v if anyone wants to see where we are likely to be. It gets updated with actual position each night.

Well we woke to the rain again, we set off down to Saul Junction to do a pump out, but when we arrived found it "out of order" so carried on down to the one in Gloucester, I must say it worked well. Once finished we winded, not easy with the way the buildings funnel the wind and headed back a short way to Sainsbury's, its quite good as they have 4 hr moorings right at the back of the shop, just a pity there is no checkout this side. After the pumpout I had my eye on a nice mooring just outside the Brew House, I dislike those short pontoons in the basin, especially if its a bit windy, anyway our luck was in and it was still vacant once the shopping was complete so that is where we are.
