Floating Harbour update

During our time here, we have visited some of the sites on offer, and enjoyed the bars and restaurants. We have used the small ferry next to our mooring, to nip across the harbour several times, and have visited the SS Great Britain, Clifton Suspension Bridge, and the Observatory, with its Giants Cave and working Camera Obscura. Below is selection of photographs.

Tide out in Avon Gorge

Tomorrow our time in Bristol will be over, and we will set off on a return route to Bath. The flow of the river will be against us this time, so the journey may take a little longer, and we will likely use more diesel.
