Gloucester to Tewkesbury

 Approaching Tewkesbury

We left Gloucester Docks at 11.00 in glourious sunshine. This continued throughout our travels to Tewkesbury.

The tide was coming in, so as we met the tidal section at Upper Partings, our speed increased quite noticably. Good news for us, very fuel friendly.

Entering Upper Lode Lock

We completed the 13.71 mile trip in a record 3 1/2 hours, not including 45 mins going through 3 locks.

On approaching Tewkesbury we did notice a rather unusual way of boating.

 We don't think it will fit in the bins provided.

After settling in to our mooring, we decided an Indian meal would be a good way of celebrating.

We are setting off for Pershore today.
