|All quiet now, after a disturbed night.|
Whilst Cath did some essential shopping, I got things ready for departure. Having noted that two hire boats had spent the night on the "thirty minutes maximum" services moorings for the water point, they showed little sign of moving on, so I was compelled to carry heavy water containers some distance back to "Sickle". I expect they thought me a bit rude when I didn't exactly return their greetings when they were still blocking the facilities when we did finally get going. Still, where they were, they probably had had a less disturbed night than us!
