The Paddington Basin security people made a visit to the boat and left a nice little booklet outlining the facilities here in the Paddington area. They also left a letter welcoming us to the basin and reminding us that there is a maximum limit on the time we can stay here (7 days) and that we can’t return here again within two calendar months. We were aware of the 7 day limit but the two months ‘no return’ was new news – not that it matters.

There is a hydraulically operated ‘feature’ bridge here in the basin and I managed to catch some photos of them ‘exercising’ it – see below.
