Water water everywhere

‘Bloody Hell!’
Those were the first words Hubby uttered on opening the hatch to take Maggie out this morning.
Scrambling out of the nice warm bed (I intended to get up honest!), having received NO RESPONSE to my enquiry ‘What’s the matter??!!!’, I shoved my feet into my slippers, and climbed the two steps to see what was happening.

We could see boats.
Not a surprise living on a marina, but we could see ENTIRE boats (rather than just the roofs) on the river on the other side of the bank from us as, well, there was practically no bank anymore.

These were taken from our pontoon

Now if I was living in a house, I’d be seriously worried!


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    haha Bit of a shock though all the same! 🙂

    • We’ve still got a few feet spare to go, but it seems really strange walking down the ‘island’ pontoons now with no bank immediately in front of us. It’s like we’re somewhere else!
