Safely home

Arrived home today, although it wasn’t intended. We couldn’t park where we had planned to for tonight, so as we were only 2 locks from home, we pressed on, arriving back in our berth by 8.15, exactly 12 hours after we set out this morning.
It’s been a long day, one of the hottest this year, and we are both sporting red noses that would give Comic Relief a run for the money, and ours are permanently attached!

Our evenings have been spent playing cribbage or scrabble, listening to bird song or the peace and tranquility of the night, writing poetry, and reading. Hubby has done a little bit of sketching too.

I have loads of photos to sort out, but for now, here is one from last year with a new Haiku

bow night sky
Darkness surrounds us
Owls hooting, bats flying low,
Hunters of the night.

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.
