Today we visited St Benet's Abbey. Someone decided to slap a windmill right in the middle of what was left of the 14th Century gate house in the 18th century. This would be like like putting a wind turbine on top of Saint Paul's cathedral today.|
Not much wind today so we had to use the engine more than we liked. Had to lower the mast to get under a bridge. The mast came down a lot easier then it went back up. People in front of up used a pilot but we thought "bugger that" and took it through. We hadn't known we needed a pilot to go under it the when we went under it the day before and there was a good twelve inches clearance anyway.
Moored up for the night now and typically the wind is getting up.
Now if I just knew what happened to my trousers that Sue took in for me I'd be happy. I hope the Royal Mail hasn't lost 'em.
