I towed M.A. to Lawrenny Quay on the Milford Haven Estuary.Good Slipway and parking, friendly people and a pub and cafe close by.
Launched the boat then made upstream to Langwm for the night.Very peacefull sheltered inlet off the river. Mighty Atom sat happily on a gravel beach for the night .I relaxed in the cockpit eating a meal and drinking some wine as the sun went down then a comfortable night asleep until the tide returned at 0445 when I motored out bleary eyed to a deep water mooring then turned in again until about 0800.
Sailed down to Milford Haven town pontoon had a visit from the marine Police in their rib,as a major oil port Milford is a bit of a sensitive area these days but the police were pleasant and just asked me my intentions for the day.
After lunch sailed back up to Burton for the night had a pint in the Jolly Sailor prior to a deep sleep on the Pontoon by the pub.Larger boats may be unwelcome for overnight stops as its meant to be a landing pontoon only but M.A. is small enough to not be noticed so much :-) Last day had a leisurely walk and breakfast before leaving Burton and sailing back upstream to Lawrenny to recover the boat and head for home.
Mostly good weather and North Easterly winds sometimes a bit strong but manageable in the sheltered waters.
