No it wasn't but I hope you will all forgive us for doing it. You see we moved the boat. Not by much, just about 10ft, but enough to get us away from those blasted falling Crab apples! Why should that be a problem I hear you ask? Well we have now left a gap at both ends. Initially it was just behind us by about 30ft but when a wide beam was asked to move on by the C&RT enforcement officer because he had been sat on the 24 hour mooring by the lock for 4 days, he pulled into a space in front of us. He pulled forward sharing a ring with the boat in front, which meant another 10ft or so gap in front of us! I can just imagine what boaters will be saying 'cause I would have said it too!!!, There is still room on the 24 hour now that the wide beam has left and also right at the end of the line of boats on the 14 day moorings. Still, this really is no excuse for what we have done but we just couldn't envisage another night of being bombarded by those apples.
|Thats the wide beam leaving and causing havoc in the process.|
And seen opposite FS now that we have moved.
