The M5 was busy yesterday, so much so that when we came back from town, we were glad we weren’t on it, as traffic was at a standstill.
Later, we saw the motorway from another perspective, and although traffic was flowing, well, so were we…………….. underneath!
It was a bit windy out on the water, and so we were zig-zagging a bit holding her steady, but saying that, we had the river to ourselves again.
To be honest, it was such a lovely day and as we needed to run the engine, we thought it would be nice to go out rather than stay in the marina and churn up the mud here.
Coming back in though was tricky, as the wind caught us and Hubby had a bit of a game docking. Unfortunately, we nudged another narrow boat, and the owner came out to give us a hand with the ropes, knowing full well how difficult it can be sometimes.
Weighing in at 8 tonnes, she’s no lightweight either, but narrow boats are built to withstand the occasional nudge, not like the fibre glass cruisers which tend to crumple if they get in the way or try to take us on.
He’s refurbishing his, and Hubby was invited to go in and see how they were getting on.
Now if we’d ‘kissed’ somebody’s car, they would have been up in arms shouting abuse and demanding compensation!
