    Smile Re: Visit to Bristol

    A little update to my post, we made it to Bristol and stayed on the Arnolfini moorings for 6 days, wasn't as noisy as I expected. The water point on the shore is a difficulty, particularly for anyone moored on the other side of the hammerhead and the pump out opposite the ss Great Britain didn't work, but a good experience.
    We've carried on up through Sharpness, but the days are getting shorter and we soon need to backtrack about 110 locks up the K&A and onto the Thames and back to Ipswich.
    The only negative of the trip is the CRT who are pathetic and stupid, what with licensing problems (caused by themselves) and the lack of facilities up the K&A ,never mind trying to find a mooring space with all the overstaying liveaboards; perhaps the only advice I'd offer is to bring a gang plank/scaffold board which would open up a few more moorings.
