This is the largest B&B, maybe 10 rooms, we stayed in and fronts a very busy road. I think our window is the middle window, on the right wall, not on the busy road, on the 2nd floor. Princess Polly was opposite across the hall. We did a bit of laundry in the sinks and hung the clothes on the radiators. That worked pretty well and good thing as finding a laundry is very rare. Forget ever bringing cotton on a big trip again. The quick dry items are going to be my only travel clothes in the future.
We went out for our hike after getting sandwiches at the local supermarket. The hike was to the top of Cow Hill, just behind Fort William, and about 7 miles in length when all said and done. There were midges bothering us some at the top but the view and the lunch were very good.
You can just see the Yacht Club, in the photo above, taken from the top of Cow Hill, it is near the big white building below on the inle. ,If I was staying in Fort William until Sunday I could go racing on a Soling. I might visit the YC again tomorrow if there is rain as they are having a day of fooling around there. I saw a dude there today, Harry, and he assured me I could crew for sure on Sunday. This place is 40-50 miles in from the Atlantic, way up an inlet.
A. Shower controls are NOT standardized. Most have been on demand electrically heated so one has to turn on a switch prior to getting in the shower. Good news/other news… Hot water forever but not much pressure.
We were walking around Northwich doing tourist things and getting a 'dongle' for web connections when we came upon this very strange Nissan delivery van. I want one but have no idea how to search for it. A right hand drive like this one would be great fun on the back roads in Snohomish County where we live.
Narrow Boat first impressions:
(Actually this was better than most boat renters get for a check out drive, most just say 'good luck')
