Sunday 5th September
Today our luck with the weather ran out. We had to vacate the marina this morning and after using all the facilities they could offer, water, rubbish disposal etc. we set off just as the rain started. Boy oh boy did it come down hard. Our intention was only to get to a mooring nearer town (a free one of course) which took only about 10 minutes but by the time we had tied up we were both soaked, despite wet weather gear. Just after that the rain eased off and stopped for a couple of hours. Ah well you can't win them all. We went into town for a spot of lunch and a look around,but the rain started again so we're now huddling in the boat and will probably move down to Gloucester tomorrow.
