Coffee with the First Lady

Alf, owner of barge First Lady, came out to give us a wave as we were cruising,past his winter mooring yesterday. We were way north last time we saw him. Coffee was offered and accepted and we moored alongside him amd went onboard. We could probably have sat there all day chatting and laughing but...move on we did. Into Quigley's Marina for fuel, water and made use of their skip. Such a helpful team there.....though that is no surprise. Then up to the Inny River for some peace and quiet! We had intended to stay two nights but........

Plans for the weekend revised after an up to date weather forecast. We won't run back into Athlone but head for Lecarrow tomorrow and continue north from there.
