First sight of Charm

In order to foster links between The Harrison Butler Association and The Albert Strange Association, I travelled overnight by car to Titchmarsh Marina, located in The Walton Backwaters on England's East Coast, late August 2016. There, at 6 am, I got my first sight of Charm as she arrived a couple of hours before high tide. Under the command of her skipper and owner, Robert Westling, she was manoeuvred with skill on to the visitor's pontoon.
