We navigated the boat successfully from the Roach (lovely smooth anchorage, recommended) to the hammerhead on D pontoon in Burnham marina, sailing most of the way in the gentle breeze. Now this pontoon is long, it must be 500 yards at least, so it is a long walk to the facilities.
We spent the first half of the day washing clothes and ourselves, then shopping followed by a late lunch. Elaine was due to arrive by train at 14:44 so knowing that she would have a heavy bag (containing amongst other things, an Elaine tradition and very welcome, a Blue Peter cake ( a fruit cake)), we borrowed one of the marina’s trolleys and put it to good use bringing her bags back to the boat -or at least I did, the girls went to explore Burnham
Evening was spent in the marina bar, whence I attempted to upload this blog onto the internet, unsuccessfully. The meal however, was more successful so apart from the frustrated efforts of accessing the internet, it had been a very pleasant day.
