Pipedreams


Recommended Posts

We arrived early Saturday morning , 0200!!!!

Slept aboard in the wet shed , things to do early morning, up at 0700 and prepared for the day ahead , windy but dry (for a while more later) , popped into Tesco’s for supplies then into Marine transmissions in Stalham to book the boat in for the tube heaters and the name change (currently still Sheer Elegance) then back aboard and set sail.

Motored on to Ranworth but it was full , popped up to Boulters for fuel , now full a much smaller tank than Cerise Lady , tries Ranworth again still rammed, weather by now was rainy but snug inside , we decided on Fleet Dyke , the new moorings , by now the wind and rain had escalated with a vengeance glad to be tucked up .

slept well amongst the maelstrom occurring outside , up early , morning stroll then onto Ranworth for the day , AKA Pipedreams in her rightful spot currently trying The Granarys new English breakfast , served 10:00 till 11:00 today

Lovely evening spent at Ranworth in the company of faces old and new , set sail at 13:00 , no longer having to worry about the clearance at Ludham , 8ft today, and a leisurely dawdle back up the Ant , afternoon tea now at Gays before returning to the wet shed , already looking forward to a fortnight when we are afloat again , and hopefully in a re sign written  Pipedreams then too .

Half-term peak well and truly over then. . . . . . . . . .

 

Had to drop a couple of bits up to our boat yesterday and Silverline were moving their returning fleet to the moorings at the side of their yard.  I’d guess that the rest of their craft finishing this morning have been moved now too, ready for their winter maintenance programme.
