Maiden voyage

We took advantage of yesterday’s sunshine and brought the boat half way home. It’s great! Apart from having lots more room, it’s got a CB radio to warn the lock-keeper of your approach, and a depth meter which shows how much water is beneath you. It’s even got a fish-finder should you want to catch your dinner.

Here is JP skippering. He’s grown a beard for the occasion.

Tonight we are going to sleep on it. I love spending the night on boats. The motion of the water lulls you  to sleep and you wake in the morning to see swans gliding past the window. Serene.

And the Colonel was on his best behaviour. We gave him a meal and a bed for the night and he’s now left us in peace.

    I'm envious. I wish I was messing about with boats.
