Sharpness & back

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. At low tide there was almost no water in the river. It looked as though you could walk across.

We had lunch sat outside on the bank and then went for a walk through the marina and along part of the Severn Way, which follows the towpath here.
On the way back we called in at the “Black Shed” for a bottle of gas, but they had run out.

In contrast to previous days the evening was calm, with hardly any wind at all. This gave some lovely reflections on the water.
