This is basin 2 at 9am this morning:

This is across the river and those already on blocks out of the water

Normally the water is in the green. When high waters come, I’ll take another picture for comparison as I didn’t do it last year.

Very few ducks here at the moment, but these guys are blooming:

Best friends are Hubby and Dog, Bro, MSM and our Dominoes Friend aka MOH (and his dog). 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 enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours but times change and we are once again house hunting.

  1. People remove their boats in winter for storage? It must get pretty lonely down there for you guys then (although I expect a lot quieter too)

    • It’s nice out of season (apart from dire weather days of course) as it is quiet and peaceful without the visitors cluttering up the place. Not all boats come out though, and those that stay in the water have to be ‘winterised’ so as water in pipes doesn’t freeze etc etc. As liveaboards, we’re here all the time of course so don’t have to worry about that sort of thing.
