Shortly before 1pm I was at the rail station with Fletcher and Floyd to meet Jack, my 15 year old nephew, who had travelled up from Essex to join Joe and I for a few days. As soon as we had dumped Jack's rucksack back at the boat we toddled off into Ely to find us some lunch. Dinner, the day is punctuated by meal times when you have a fifteen year old with 'hollow legs' staying, was a substantial takeaway Chinese affair...

We decided to moor up at the GOBA moorings at Waterbeach and continue into Cambridge in the morning.

After a night here at Waterbeach we revisited the plans and decided to stay here on this rural mooring but take the train into Cambridge instead of the boat.
