I spent a lovely evening at Barton Turf last night , there was a band playing at a house near Coxs yard could have been a party as there was a lot of cars at the staithe car park.
This morning I woke at 5.30 , looked out of the window to a nice day but had to take a second look, it was a different view ,I was at the end of Paddys lane on the opposite side, if I hadn't woken at that time l may have made it to the Ant.
One ore two of the party revellers may have thought it was a good idea to make a bit of room at the staithe or to give all the boats and dinghys a head start in the morning , luckily they didn't release the boats on Paddys Lane or it would have been chaos.
Before setting off I deemed it wise to check the mooring ropes as to avoid a tangled prop but to my surprise the were placed remarkably tidy on the boat.
i found it quite amusing and no damage was done to my boat but I suppose it could have been more serious had I drifted to the Ant.
just thought I'd share this with you all.
