Today was a day of cleaning, particularly Phoenix's hairs from all the odd nooks and crannies that they seem to find their way and those important maintenance jobs which need to be done like tightening the stern gland and removing any grease and muck from the collection vessel under the gland. I also cleaned out the squirrel stove as hopefully we will not need it on the next trip.
Then it was off home with the first load of clothes and dog bits and pieces that are not to be left on the boat. It was also the opportunity to see out neighbours who we have not seen for four months as they were away in New Zealand and Australia when we left.
June took the opportunity of having a nice hot bath something she really misses on the boat, so on the next boat will have to have one.
Back at the boat we relaxed in the lovely sun and did a few more odd jobs ready for our visit to Crick tomorrow and then our final trip back home.
