Sadly our year’s cruising was coming to an end even sooner than we’d planned, as due to a couple of lock and bridge closures we needed to be at Mercia Marina by early November, a month earlier than expected.
On the way down from Birmingham the signs of changing season were becoming more obvious with autumnal leaves and early mists.

We’d like to wish everyone from near and far a very Happy New Year, and look forward to connecting with you in person, or online, in 2016.
