It was with some reluctance we left Saul Junction. We picked up fuel and water so that we could run the washing machine on our return to Gloucester.

This is a very smart boat with a really roomy wheelhose

Once arrived we said hello to the Lock Keeper and then the Waterways Museum staff and collected a booklet about the River Severn above Gloucester. Then once having deposited our recycling in the correct bins we made another visit to the Lindt chocolate shop.

Now, Tim you will like this. We launched the dinghy to do our weekly shop at Sainsburys just forgot to take a photo! It certainly made passers by smile!

Another example of the kindness of strangers

Dredging in progress. It certainly rocked the boat!
