This morning we arose when the alarm clock, aka the diesel heater went off. The sun was streaming in through the roof prisms, however upon opening the side hatches, the sky was disappointingly cloudy. The forecast was for some very gusty winds, and these seemed to be building by the minute. After breakfast we were underway, 200 yards to the junction, and then turning right towards Welford. The arm is quite overgrown and shallow in places, but it was not long before reaching the solitary lock. The gates were already open in our favour, so it was straight in at which point the furry crew member, kept his beady eye on things from the bridge above.
Once through the lock it was only a few hundred yards to the end of the arm. The 48 hr spot at the far end was full, so we winded and moored opposite the Marina. Lunch was taken in the Wharf Inn, where we met fellow Hudson owners from nb ATLAST. The afternoon was spent watching England crumble at the final hurdle, in pursuit of a second Grand Slam. Looking at the weather forecast, we will stay put till Tuesday, when it appears we have some decent sunshine to look forward too.
