Day 83: Last time in Sharpness.

Hello Friends and Followers.

It has been another lovely day weatherwise and one has to wonder when it will all completely breakdown and we will have days of rain?
I am sincerely hoping it is not for another couple of weeks at least, because we have to get off of the G&S and the River Severn and onto the River Avon to take part in the Stratford-upon-Avon river festival.

Anyway, we spent a quiet night at Sims Bridge. After a lovely afternoon, we decided that we would take an evening stroll down to the River Severn to see the Severn Bore, which we have not witnessed before. We walked up to Rea Bridge, turned right and followed the road down to the river, where we found a spot to sit and wait and wait. It was said it would arrive at 9.40pm, but did not arrive until some 20 minutes later. You can not hurry mother nature.

It amazed me just how quick the water came up the river. Apparently the next one is in August and it is expected to be bigger.
The sunset provided us with a treat as well. I am a huge sunrise and sunset lover and sitting by the river was such a treat. After the Severn Bore took place, the Severn Bore Inn provided us with a fireworks show. A perfect ending to a lovely day.

This morning we left our overnight mooring. The hope was to moor at Purton, but with the visitor moorings full up, we headed onto Sharpness instead.
We have a nice mooring overlooking the estuary. So I may just get some lovely snaps over the weekend. This will be our last weekend down in the neck of the woods for sometime.
