|Would you believe the tug on the left was over 60 years old! The maintenance boat on the right is a youngster, just 30|
|A very important job. Sweeping the incoming water towards the pump.|
|Shopping trolley, bike, lump hammer and by the right side corner....a windlass. Quick get the sea magnet out!!!!|

A very interesting few hours spent wandering round and chatting and even the rain held off. Then it was lunch at the Castle Barge before we departed to our separate destinations. Just got back to FS when the rain started and the wind picked up. The Gods must have been smiling on us today, me thinks. Now if only I had plans for tomorrow. Oh yes....... I know......back to watching daytime TV again!
