Last Saturday our very good friends, Pete and Sally, came over to cruise with us for the day and brought my Mum with them. This was a very special day for me as, at the age of 92, this was the first time my Mum had seen Matilda Rose. We spent the preceding few days desperately trying to find a mooring with road access and where we could get MR's bows level with the shore and close in (ie no gang plank). We finally achieved this outside the Ferryboat Inn at Holywell - although only in one specific spot along the mooring as the rest wasn't deep enough to get right into the bank.
The only shadow on the day was the abusive fisherman who took exception to us mooring on the mooring when we returned our visitors to Holywell!
Mum's day was rounded off by a visit to Ely Cathedral on the way home - she slept well that night and has dined out on her adventures ever since.
Thank you Pete and Sally
