Just a little quickie on observation.
I’ve said previously that Maggie doesn’t travel well now, and there are times when she is a real pain with her pacing and squeaking, even if we have stopped for a potty break or to give her a drink if it’s a long journey.
However, we have realised that if we are doing a constant speed on the motorway or main A roads, she is happy as Larry, and may either sit in the centre of the back seat with her head between our shoulders taking in the scenery directly in front of us, or curl up and go to sleep.
If we are stop/starting in traffic or going through little villages with 20/30 mph speed limits (of which there are a few on the way to MOH and a LOT on the trip down South, whichever way we go), she is totally restless!
And so to part two of this post:
Our boat is suddenly very popular with the fish.
We have noticed that when we empty the washing up bowl after breakfast, loads of dace and roach are coming up to the surface by the waste pipe for nibbles.
It would appear they are rather partial to rice and bread crumbs, but will ignore bits of meat, veg or scrambled egg.
Their definite favourite though is porridge. This morning, it was quite a fish fin frenzy as they vied for the flakey remnants of our breakfast.
We must also have the cleanest fish in the marina as they seem to bask in the bubbled water!
