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!

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.

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?
