|The Lyneal Project seems to have aquired 3 new boats all looking splendid in their new paintwork|
We soon reached Cole Mere just visible through the trees and passed the lovely log cabins by the lake.

Not long after the fleet arrived and filled all the available mooring spots with us. I had to move AmyJo a little and as I untied the ropes and was holding her steady a boat, whose name shall not be mentioned, came rushing past. It was all I could do to hold AmyJo so I shouted to please slow down to which the pompous ass at the helm replied "I'm on tick over" I relied then drop out of gear to slow down to which he called " no I have to keep control of the boat or I'll smash into you". I'll not print my reply but I did get a mouthed apology from his poor wife.

The forecast for tomorrow is not good with heavy rain and strong winds on the cards so we have all decided to stay put for now.
