Last Saturday we finally left Peterborough. We had only intended to stay a few days but were seduced by the amazing entertainment into hanging around for nearly a fortnight! We moved a few miles up river to Ferry Meadows – a lovely park with moorings.
Here we got together with Jo and Dave from Panacea and were also visited by Anne from Fenland Fox (minus her boat). I don’t think we’ve been so sociable since we parted ways with the Aston Marina crowd at Manchester. Much cake was consumed and then we had a walk to try (vainly I’m afraid) to exercise some of those calories away.
On Sunday we waved goodbye to Jo and Dave …
…and moved on to Wansford Station on the Nene Valley Railway where, much to our delight, we found ourselves in the middle of a Steam Gala. We were moored in a spot right under the railway bridge with a brilliant view of the trains. I make no apology for the steam train porn that follows!
Oh, and I forgot to mention that a plane kept flying overhead and dropping out parachutists – there were dozens of the buggers!
