The St Kat’s rally, all three boats, was as expected a delight and a great location for partying and chilling whilst watching the world (almost all of it with cameras) go by. The trip there included the obligatory stop over at Queenborough, where we found a micro brewery that stocks 50 varieties of gin, and then on up river to the eternal waiting at Tower Bridge, we know the lock is over two hundred years old but the problems they appear to be experiencing are not getting any easier. Over 4 hours from arrival to locking in to the dock. But once in it was great, we tried almost every restaurant and all bar one gave us discounts from 10 -25 % using the dock users discount card. So the stay was great, and the food was different each day. We even scrubbed the boats, well some of us did
The trip back was uneventful
well almost, and with no wind meant we motored the whole way, locking out at 0800 and arriving back in Burnham at 1830. Jackalope continued on up to Harwich before setting off Sunday morning towards his new home port of Fox’s Ipswich.
All in all a very pleasant week, in the heart of the capital, with visitors and friends joining in the partying and relaxing.
