Norbury Junction.

Our next stop was at the very busy Norbury Junction on the 48hr moorings with rings and a concrete edging. This was very convenient for touching up the paintwork on the other side of our boat. Some rust spots had developed making the paint blister up around the side hatch hinges. So I scraped this all down to the metal, sanded it, then treated it with rustproof primer.

As the sun had been switched on again we went up to the Old Wharf Tearoom for morning coffee. The sparrows and ducks came to surround our table as we sat outside to see if we had any food morsels for them. This cat was furtively creeping through the long grass, then I heard an awful racket which turned out to be a Peahen. Suddenly the savage creature tore across the grass and chased the cat away through a gap in the hedge!

Nearby this was one of five giant stones that were placed around the locality forming a millennium trail in the year A.D 2000.  They were glacier boulders deposited hereabouts at the end of the last ice age about 10 millennia ago.
