Cracking on………… and off.

The crane has been at work and there are visible changes in the basin itself.

The two pictures on the left were taken through the yard gate, and the one on the right from the edge of the car park here on the marina itself.

However, the ducks are not that impressed.

artist-impressionThis is what it actually looks like now:
long-viewPractically all of last night we had heavy rain which lasted well into the early morning.
So it came as no surprise to see the water level had risen considerably and at 6pm tonight was recorded as 2.586 m.

This is not unusual though and far from being flooded as far as we’re concerned.
In fact it’s nice for our old knees as the gantry is at a kinder angle from the car park.
However, rain seems to have stopped play on the work front.

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 for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. 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. Had to laugh – we see “development opportunities” just like that around here.
    Heavy fog once again with a few bits of sun.
    Ducks not impressed with that either

  2. I take it this ‘development opportunity’ also comes with a hefty price tag!

    • Not exactly clear to be honest. We have heard they are thinking of around the £300K mark, but my guess is you can double that in the present climate and heaven knows what it will be when they are finally built!
