I was 25 miles inland, but just knew it was a beautiful day for cruising or fishing. Bu**er I hate when I have those days!

That does'nt sound quite so much fun but once home you'll be in time for some wonderful Spring boating weather

Trip out accross Morecambe Bay then a circuit of Walney Island befor picking up a mooring at Piel for a brew, back to Knott End via Morecambe. As usual forgot to take a camera, but if I had the pictures would not be dissimilar to Zodiacman's.

Launched the SR4.7 at Lawrenny to try a new prop out. Ended up taking a run over to Skomer Island to see the seals and their pups. Beautiful day.
