Home At Last!

It's a long way from Gare Loch in Scotland to Tollesbury in Essex, but Bonnie is finally home. Here she is coming down the creek with Ida and Iska. They arrived about 1.30pm. Wasn't the weather just perfect.
Alongside the quay ready to be walked round to her berth.

Moored up at last.

One or two people came to help celebrate!

Pete and myself with a well deserved glass of champagne. Mind you, I don't know why Pete felt he had time to relax, he has got a barge to fit out!


  1. Looking good - we know only too well the feeling of getting your boat home! She looks like a very characterful barge, going to watch the restoration with interest!

  2. Thanks Simon, lots of work ahead but you know that feeling too! Here's to all of us achieving the dream. Cheers!

  3. Excellent news.

    Congratulations to one and all.

    Now the work really starts :)

  4. Thanks everyone. The most satisfying thing about the trip as far as Peter was concerned was that Bonnie came all the way down under her own steam. It will be a lot easier to work on her now she is only two minutes down the road. Trouble is I don't want to do this living in a house anymore so we had better get our fingers out!
