Moorings


Yesterday we went down to Lawrenny for a picnic. It is a lovely spot and it is where we used to have a mooring for our yacht. It brought back a lot of memories.

The time I got up in the middle of the night in a howling gale to row our dog ashore as he was desperate and then he jumped over board out of the tender. I did manage to catch up with him and drag him aboard.

The time when we first arrived in a new yacht after sailing from Swansea and I went below to find 12 inches of water in the cabin.(No panic there then).

The time when the engine packed up as we were manoeuvring amongst expensive yachts in a strong out going tide and the engine packed up!

It goes on.

Anyway it was nice to return and have a look at the place. The picture above is actually of the Jetty and moorings on the Towy where we had our boat for many years. The painting never sold and it went to the big land refill site in the sky although I was actually quite fond of it.
