... a settling-in day yesterday, tidying up and putting away items we'll not need for a while like life-jackets, mooring pins, etc. The weather was fine and sunny but oh so cold, it's hard to believe that just two days ago it was just like summer!
We are aware that there will be other winter mooring arriving so what's going on around us? ....
... a narrowboat making a lot of noise
... with Marc (marina director/manager) at the tiller. This is the way he gets the silt moving out of this channel, it builds up from a small inlet just behind where Still Rockin' is moored
Marc has also opened the sluice from the weir on the other side at Hambledon Lock to help too
... and asked George to run our engine and move the tiller to wash the silt away.
The narrowboat is now moored opposite us and later in the day dutch barge Kyrenia arrived and moored up. I don't know if anyone will be staying on these boats whilst they're moored here.
A cruiser has also arrived and moored infront of Kyrenia, it's starting to fill up!
Sunset after a busy day.
It feels good here, I think we'll be ok.
