Gloucester Docks (Again)

By Wednesday morning (August 17th) the wind had dropped and it was a very pleasant trip back to Gloucester Docks. Around Quedgeley I saw a kingfisher flying down the reach in front of us.

After a stop at the Sainsbury’s superstore near Llanthony Bridge, and taking on water near the Victoria Warehouse, we moored up on the floating pontoons in the main basin.

We stayed put on Thursday (18th) as the weather was predicted to be wet. The forecast turned out to be correct – it was not the day to go up the Severn. We investigated the Antique Centre and discovered Gloucester Quays shopping outlet. Dinner at the Pan-Asian restaurant on the docks, the Vinery, was great – a good value buffet.
