Home again

We have been out for five nights this time, and for the main, it has been a good trip.
We’ve met some smashing people, shared locks with several, and even experienced the ‘contact sport’ of boating as advertised, and not all of our own doing.
We have learned something new, had a little tea party of sorts on the river mooring, and discovered that even Old Timers with 40 or 50 years behind them still make mistakes or get caught out with the wind.
Throughout I have been Synning by the Book, and with the added advantage of nowhere to shop, once the goody supplies ran out, we had to ‘survive’ on what was in the cupboards and the fresh veg we’d purchased that didn’t need to be refrigerated.
comperton bowWe set off last Wednesday in beautiful sunshine, and experienced no problems at all with the 2 locks on our way to Comberton Quay (I have just noticed that I have been spelling it with a P rather than B after all this time).
Sadly, there was no mooring room  so we pressed on to the Nature Reserve and spent the night there.
According to the board, otters may be seen here, but we weren’t that lucky, though we had our fair share of geese, mallards and swans.
Despite being quite close to the road and adjacent to a popular place for young lovers, we had a pretty quiet night and were off again quite early the next morning.
We didn’t get far………………………………………..


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
