Final cruise of the year went very well, despite a few days of heavy rain whilst in Birmingham, the weather was on our side coming back to the basin, sunny but cold.
Whilst in Birmingham we had a look around the German Christmas Market but didn’t find anything I wanted to buy. I felt sorry for the stallholders who had obviously paid a fee to be in the market but the weather was badly against them and from what I could see, most people were hurrying through to get out of the rain, without buying much.
I also had a session on the Ice Skating rink, discovering that I’ve still got the ability to do it without damaging myself, also took a session in the swimming pool and sauna, very pleasant on a cold day.
Now it is just a case of tidying up the boat before we head to Devon for Christmas.
