A Woolly Jumper Weekend

It has certainly been a woolly jumper weekend. Very bracing at times and bitterly cold even by day. On saturday we were battered by the northerly wind and then yesterday just never got vaguely warm.

Despite the weather we had a great weekend. Saturday was a lazy start with eggs benedict for breakfast, before heading across to the fuel berth to fill the diesel tank. 158 litres later and a gas bottle exchange for good measure and we were ready to head down river to Saxilby. No great journey at only 4 miles from our home berth but a good destination for our bonfire evening.

Sunday was another lazy day. Neither of us could be bothered to get up with the rain beating on the canopies, so we rolled over and had another hour in bed. Eventually getting up at about 10am, late for us, we enjoyed a breakfast of duck egg and soldiers before scurrying back to the marina to get tucked up with a couple of beers watching Stephen King's IT, before heading across to Harbour Lights for sunday dinner, which was delicious. We will certainly be going back again for food.
