Purton 25Feb13

Today we headed for Sharpness to finally complete the whole of the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal before making our way back to Gloucester and the River Severn.

On turning at Sharpness Marina we filled the water tank and tied up a short distance back where the Severn, at high tide, runs up to the 'hulks' beached just below the towpath at Purton.

We'll be here a few days while we explore and get a feel for the local area and its history. I just hope the sun returns to show us the foreshore and river estuary in all their glory; fingers crossed.

I love the Purton hulks, Keith and I sat and had a picnic on one of the concrete ones and watched the world go by. We look forward to do it again someday.
