We got a lay in, the cows, rowers, cyclists runners were not going to disturb us this time. Amassing how quick you can adjust.
We set off about 10 on our way back to Ely. Bloody raining again, well for the first hour it hammered it down.
Out came the full thermal waterproofs.
On the way we saw a couple of interesting boats.
A steam powered launch. The smell was brilliant
And now for something larger
About 4 hours later we arrived back at Ely. The first mooring I saw (which turned out to be the only one........ honest!) was gonna be home for the night.
Damn our luck ;-)
