Journey’s End…

Posted by indigodream on 28 May, 2016

Moored up at Allington – what an epic day – eleven and a half hours of such varied boating experiences that it felt like a lifetime yet was over in an instant:-)

We were fortunate to have excellent cruising companions in Andrew and Frances on nb Doris Katia, and our own crew,Neil & Kath from nb Herbie and Kevin & Jan from nb Peace of Pearce.

It’s now pub o’clock and the weather’s the best it’s been all day – c’est la vie:-)

Just waiting to lock onto the non-tidal Medway – almost the end of a spectacular day’s cruising:-)

3.41pm Medway – a few miles downstream of Allington

Posted by indigodream on 28 May, 2016

I hadn’t realised how lovely it is on the Medway – the green hedgerows are a welcome confort after the grey vastness of the Thames Estuary:-)

1.53pm Chatham

The river is crowded with little sailing boats – must be the busiest stretch of river we’ve ever cruised:-)
