On leaving we spent our last weekend in Gloucester, with another visit to the Abbey and the sculpture exhibition and wander around the town. Come Monday we headed across the dock and dropped down through Gloucester lock on to the R. Severn again. Yarwood just loves rivers, with all that water below the base plate and a big prop to shift it with she is in her element and so are we. Our first hop was up stream towards Tewkesbury again where we overnighted on the R. Avon and awaited a visit from my brother Bob.

We stayed in Stourport over the weekend where I managed to see a doctor that I had signed on with when Yarwood was built, the dogs went to the vet they saw three years ago for their annual 'MOT' and got all the anti tick/fly meds they will need to protect them in Spain over the winter and we did the VHF radio practical and somehow both managed to pass the assessment and get our Short Range Certificates to operate marine radios.
And, we had a very, very good take-out Chinese meal.
