Still winter

We went out on Misterton last week for a brief half-term trip. Our destination was the Wherry Hotel in Oulton Broad and we got there without too much trouble. It was a nice place to go for a quick stop, with a park and cafe close by. And of course, mooring outside a pub means an early evening drink had to be done. The next day we were planning on leaving at 0830 to catch the tide back to Beccles, but I was suprised to see a large part of the Broad frozen over.

Our friends from the Golden Mean were there too, so we decided to hang out on both boats until the sun thawed the ice. I made this video early in the morning, I had not been drinking.

We ended up pushing the tide all the way home, and discovered that we can't get very far into our yard at low water, so have to wait until the morning to move Misterton back to her normal mooring.
