Near the town quay in Lymington the water was like a mirror, a good day to go out and check on the boat on it's mooring, even run the engine and charge the batteries if you have left the boat afloat.
Further down river all the boats are gone, presumably ashore and the moorings have been completely removed giving an unusual and uninterrupted view across the saltings. Better make the most of it, no doubt the boats will soon be back.
While the water was still and tranquil the same could not be said of the sky, with fast moving moody clouds and the odd shower coming in fast, fortunately disappearing quite quickly too, giving just enough time to duck into a coffee shop to watch the rain in comfort.
It was a great day to be out.
