Day 7, Preparing to come home

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and met several people who were interested in our way of life and our boat. We invited some aboard, and in one instance, the lady said she was more confident about taking a boating holiday now, which pleased her husband enormously.

All good things must come to an end though, and it was sad to see the bunting being taken down and the boats getting ready to return home.

We took our borrowed bunting down too and removed the bottom skirt ready for our journey.

Our friends were ready for the off around 8.15, so we started up, Hubby cast us off, and I eased us gently out of our mooring.
Our neighbours in front were waving frantically at us to stop.
I thought maybe we were still tied somewhere, but no, Maggie had decided to get off the boat for one final sniff, and we nearly left without her!

Our journey back was to prove rather eventful.

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.

    I think the lady who was scared will find out there’s nothing really to worry about. It’s nice that you helped people learn about how nice it can be out on the water
