Windy Willington

It’s been a blowy across the marina today. Unfortunately it's a fact of life with large expanses of open water, but it doesn’t make manouevering any easier. We’re not due out of here till Tuesday, but by then it’s forecast to be worse than today as Hurricane Gonzalo zips by. I don’t think we’ll be going very far…
A couple of views of the marina…

Panorama from above Nuthatch pontoon Panorama
Dominating the horizon are the five cooling towers of Willington A and B power stations. Commissioned in the 1950’s, de-commissioned in the 1990’s. The towers are the only structures left on the site.

With plenty of time to prepare we had roast beef with Yorkshire puds, roast and mash spuds and veg for a late lunch. Lovely, even though I say so myself. Bit full now...
