Casting off from Longport Wharf

From Longport to Harecastle Tunnel.


Jill and I collected Chrissie from Stoke Boats, at Longport Wharf where she’d been all winter having a few extra jobs done.
We hired a van to take all our junk back onboard this year. Apart from having much more room for things, we can do a one-way hire and not worry about leaving a vehicle at the start, where we won’t return to the end of the season.
Joining us for Easter was our Granddaughter Nancy aged 10, she enjoyed the journey from Exeter to Stoke sitting in the middle up front in the Transit.
It’s was a wet and chilly start, but once underway we were ok.
Made a short day 1 cruise to Westport Lake only about half a mile N of Longport where we spent the night.
