We arrived at the boat early evening after a busy day getting ready for the off. After unloading the car the boat seemed to sink further into the water than normal but hey-ho it all went in. June put all the food away whilst I took Jimmy for his evening walk and we met Teddy, Kane and Rocky and their owners having a BBQ on the field so stopped for the usual chat. After a late dinner we retired to bed too tired even to read.
The marina swans have managed to keep 8 signets from the 11 eggs they laid and they are quite tame marching across the driveway to reach the smaller fish ponds or tapping on the boats for food in the mornings. They were not even bothered by Jimmy.
