A plan coming together

What seems like months ago, and may well have been, Alistair came round to the idea of solar panels, he did his research and phoned the chosen one Tim) and booked a day to have them fitted. That day is tomorrow the plan was we'd position ourselves at a suitable slot, Tim would ring us the evening before and then he'd pitch up and do the work

Today, we set off from Ely, heading towards Earith and looking for mooring with road access. We passed several GOBA (Great Ouse Boating Association where we are members) moorings, lovely but isolated and marked down for stops on the way back.  So, 15 very slow miles later we arrived at Hermitage Lock and arranged to moor here overnight.  Contact was made and looks like we're on!

Heading our way? 

Tim tells us he'll be here by 0900 tomorrow. Another early start, for us!
