Cruise Notes: Final departure from Allington Marina which has been our home for the past 11 years, sorry to be leaving but looking forward to new adventure. Woke to freezing temperatures and a frost covered boat. Departed with `Syrena` and 'Dorisma` and passed through Allington Lock where we joined another boat Chatham bound. Good cruise downriver with a fine morning and sunny skies. Arrived at Chatham Maritime Marina and was called in third, encountering a small issue with visibility on entering making our arrival not one of my best!
