Easter: Fab Holiday Weekend

Well with temperatures in Southern England to equal Mexico City we have been basking in the sunshine over here. Seems the whole world went to sea over the Easter break so anchorages and marinas choca block full and rafting alongside essential.

What a great start to the season.

Re: Easter: Fab Holiday Weekend

Yes, spent the Easter hols in Yarmouth. Temp in the mid 20s and I have now gone a funny pink colour so need to stay out of the sun for a couple of days.

Everyone was out on the water and marina entrance signs saying full.
