Moored safely at Gravesend

Posted by indigodream on 1 June, 2013

Well here we are safely moored in Gravesend. We have had a great trip down organised by the St Pancreas Cruising Club, we are all grateful for their willingness to share their expertise with all.

Our crew of Capt Sue, Andy, Doug, Kath, Kev, Jan, James, Neil, Sarah and Richard are now having an orange juice to celebrate!

Gravesend

We could have been the very thin filling in a thick boat sandwich, but luckily we’re brested up in a large raft of narrow boats and protected from the big river!

This is us on our river mooring waiting for the ferry to stop running so we can get onto the pier.

Thanks to Simon from Scholar Gypsy for the photo

And this is us at Gravesend pier. Indigo Dream is on a buoy until the ferry stops working, we did a touch and go a few minutes ago to let dogs off much to the amusement of the locals, how many dogs?

Dartford Bridge in sight

Not sure if my camera phone takes a photograph which shows bridge 1 but it is an awesome sight. We are at a distance where hgvs look tiny. I think we have enough headroom.
