Holiday - Day 1 : Travel
The journey out was painless. We got to liverpool street station about 3 hours before our train was due to leave. The cab driver on the way there recounted stories of his youth. He had been brought up the hard way in the new east end (Barking and Dagenham) and was full of the stories the likes urban myths are made. It helped past the time! The train journey was good, and we got to the boat yard in good time. There has been a lot of rain recently, so our boat yard was unable to get it's boats back. The river was so high the boats wouldn't got under the bridge just before the boat yard. Everything is under water! There are times you cant tell where the river ends and the fields begin! ... The sun came out and warmed us a little as we tried to find somewhere to moor the first night, getting stuck in a private boat yard (we read the signs wrong) before finding the boat yard we *meant* to get in! Some pub-grub later (Ferry Inn), and a pint of Theakstons Mild, things were looking great. I managed to get a phone call home before we lost all reception with civilisation, no phone, no radio, no TV. Complete blackout!!
