I'm hoping to be out, although he weather isn't looking too good: heavy rain forecast for the afternoon. I'd be up for an early lunch somewhere though to try and get back ahead of the rain. Have you anywhere in mind?

Hi David, heavy rain in the afternoon changes plans, that was not forecast this morning. It's getting too expensive to come down and get rained off... off to Essex boat jumble instead I think.
next time maybe, hope all is good
cheers
Neil

No probs.....but what's the use of a cabin if you can't shelter from the rain in it!
