“Well what a great time we had! We (three couples) decided to hire the day boat (March Adventurer) so we could take a trip to Outwell to enjoy the fantastic Fens scenery and fit in a spot of geo-caching.
The weather was wet for most of the day but that DID NOT spoil our enjoyment. The boat had a large outside covered area to the bow and all the facilities to make a cuppa and sit down inside (with the heating on so we could dry out).
Leaving the marina and heading for March town centre, we stopped at the March Town moorings and headed into The Ship public house for a Full English Breakfast. Then it was time for some caching. We managed to get three caches before heading into the wilderness of the Fens.
After going through Marmount Priory Lock, which was great fun for a bunch of newbies, we headed down the tranquil stretch of Well Creek to Upwell and up to the basin at Outwell. Here we turned round and headed back, stopping at the moorings at the Five Bells to grab a couple of caches, before heading home (and stopping at The Globe for an ale and warm fire).
Getting to March, once again we stopped at The Ship for a quick drink, before catching a few more caches on the way back to the marina.
We fitted all this in to one day and managed to get back to the marina on time to hand the boat back in one piece at 6pm.
Thank you Fox Narrowboats for a great day….the weather didn’t deter us….in fact it made for an entertaining day! We will be back!”
