This is basin 2 at 9am this morning:

This is across the river and those already on blocks out of the water
marina-blocks river-blocksThe water is at one of the lowest levels we’ve seen it:

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:

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.

  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.
