A lovely warm sunny day today. We need to be back here at Splatt bridge tomorrow as Nikki is coming, but we didnt want to spend all day doing nothing so we chugged down to Sharpness. We stopped for a while where the river comes up close to the canal and watched the tide turn.
We awoke this morning to grey, overcast skies and strong winds. Our daughter Liz and her family were meeting us at Splatt bridge for a lunchtime barbecue, but it didn’t look promising. We set off about eight o’clock and had to battle against a strong headwind. At Saul we wanted to use the DIY pumpout
An early start, we were on our way by 6:15. Becca was still in bed until we got to Stourport. On the Severn it was windy and rather chilly, but an uneventful cruise down. We stopped briefly at Worcester for a cooked breakfast and to top up the water. The stretch of Severn from Worcester
