Sixth Home: July 2014 to April 2017

It was of course the boat, the subject of so many of my posts over the past two and a half years.
I have no regrets at all of our purchase, despite major misgivings that first week.
We have been able to enjoy a different type of lifestyle, met all kinds of people from all walks of life, and seen Nature at its best, most beautiful, wondrous, and cruel in respect of survival of ducklings, moorhen chicks, and cygnets.
We have learned so much, to appreciate what we have and hone our DIY skills in another dimension, literally!
It has been frustrating, fun, enjoyable and sometimes annoying, but I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.
We are glad to have been able to ‘go out’ on a high, by doing yet another batch of different things on our final journey, other things to cross off our boating ‘to do’ list.
It seemed very strange seeing BB today and I felt sad when we left. Hubby was very melancholy on the drive home.
We have already noticed a different feel to the marina here, and a sense that we are no longer a part of it but intruders, yet it has only been just over a week since we returned.
That has surprised me as I didn’t think I would feel so alienated so quickly.
Both of us are looking forward to finding our Seventh Haven and hoping that is not too far in a distant future.
For now, we are safe and all together with MSM.

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.

    So odd to be so quickly ‘replaced’ as it were at the marina.
    Onward to new adventures! All the best 🙂

  2. In the book of life a new page has been turned. Best bit about that, it’s blank!
