Well the weather didn’t improve much more today and a low mist hung over us all day.  We decided this would not make great conditions for Fowey fireworks so instead had a leisurely cruise up the Tamar  river past Alan’s home town of Saltash and on up to Pentillie Castle where we got married last year.  Just as we were passing the boat house Sammie the owner of Pentillie appeared and we told her of our plans.  We then ventured further up river to Calstock following the route of our wedding boat trip which was lovely.

We had contemplated anchoring in Dandy Hole but as the visibility reduced to a few feet decided to play safe and are now snugly anchored in Barn Pool at the mouth of the Tamar in Plymouth Sound.
