Well done Viv for posting a parcel of cables & chargers – I can charge the phone and upload some phone pix wot I took.
Enjoying my week up here – although the chores seem to lead to more work . . my efforts to replace the broken glass on the Morso Squirrel stove failed as the new glass was thinner and the screws didn’t hold it . . my efforts to tighten em lead to one shearing off. Woe. Off to Midland Chandlers to get sommit – they only had the same glass but I bought a new screw – £1 please! My neighbour & good friend Nick sorted the door by drilling out the old screw & tapping a new one in . . fixed! And the fire was still alight, Brilliant. Where am I? Oh, here:
Nick asked a favour, if we could move from B2 to B4 as he wanted to bring his other boat, a barge, across and park it next to his as he wanted to work on it. No problem – short cruise out & back – arrow shows how far we’ve moved.
Walked the dog up Cracks Hill yesterday – there’s a beacon on top and good views of Crick & back towards our marina – all very rural:
above is our very rural marina! Below is the other view to Crick:
and that beacon, followed by a very happy dog – lot’s of walks and squirmies
It’s a lovely place here – walking the dog with the sun coming up over the very still marina … swans gliding in … nice. Not many chores left now – the engine had an oil change & I’ve victualed the boat with more gin!
Well, Viv’s coming up on Friday & Saturday’s my birthday!
