Leaving Pangbourne Meadows

We left Pangbourne Meadows this morning in bright sunshine and with blue skies.

I decided to try the “track me” mode with my drone.  However, due to the amount of steel in the build of Steel Away, the magnetic forces appeared to be too great for the drone’s GPS system so I had to fly it manually and, the heart stopping moment was when the drone refused to land back on board and I had to catch it in my hand.  More practice needed!   Thankfully Angie was at the helm.

However, I managed to produce this short video which I hope you enjoy!

 

Marina frozen over!

We are experiencing some exceptionally cold weather here in the UK this week.   We’ve been spending a few days on board  while having some minor alterations made to our canopy, as well as a few other maintenance items.    This morning we woke up to the rare sight of the marina being frozen over and the ice being topped with a light covering of snow.

 

Here’s some shots from this morning:
