A Day on the Rivers Orwell and Stour
7 August 2005
We were lucky enough to receive a generous invitation to spend the day on the
yacht African Warrior. From Wolverstone marina on the River Orwell, we
travelled down to Harwich Harbour, and then up the River Stour.
We pass a steam tug as we go down the River Orwell towards Harwich Harbour
After lunch moored near Wrabness on the River Stour, we make our way back east
towards the harbour

A very enjoyable day out - our second yachting trip, and
we hope not the last.
