DSC_0534The snow was still coming down thick this morning at 7:30am.

The guys at the wharf were hard at work unloading the ship. But had time to let Mel get in the drivers seat of the JCB. I am going to have a go tomorrow.

The stuff from station will load on tomorrow and then the winters will eat on the ship tomorrow night. While they are on the ship it is traditional for those leaving to play pranks – one year the boatmen came back to find a boat in his room which had been deflated and reinflated! We cast off from the wharf on Saturday.
