Thursday August 9

A relatively short trip down to Enslow from Somerton. The weather was good - sunny with some clouds. Stopped at Heyford Wharf to have a pump-out and take on water. Because their pump-out was faulty we spent longer at the wharf than we planned but we were in no hurry. It gave us the chance to try out their excellent cafe. Their homemade cakes were particularly good and their shop was well-stocked with a good selection of real ales.

Met up with the crew of Means of Escape at the water point. Their home mooring is near to ours at Kingfisher Marina. Surprisingly we had not met Neil and Sian before. We moored up for the night near the wharf at Enslow. To complete our day of boat servicing, Steve did an engine oil change. We eat at the Rock of Gibraltar.
