Marina update

Boats have been moved back into the revamped basin this week, but there are still a lot of spaces.
This could be due to the fact that those on brokerage originally here are in the basin where we used to be, which is also looking a little empty.
When I walk the dog down for her final wee in the evenings, I rarely see anyone now, and last night there were ony five vehicles in the car park.

It has been a glorious day today, so here are some pictures of the basin taken this morning:

and this is where the proposed houses will be built once a developer takes it on.

Retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination, loves to cook, favourite food everything especially chocolate and jelly babies. 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.

    Beautiful scene!

  2. Does it feel like home when you’re down there? Or is there already some separation?

    • We feel outsiders actually, and it’s strange not going down to the boat after Maggie’s final wee. Our friends are still talking to us though, but we hardly see them now because of course we aren’t there all the time. It’s quite strange seeing so few vehicles in the car park during the week, and weekend visitors are mostly new faces to me.

    Will you be staying there?

    • Sadly no. They hiked up their mooring fees initially by 53% though came down to 38% and with the 44% increase in river licence too, we felt squeezed. However, we could have got cheeaper (and better) moorings elsewhere, but health issues have also raised their ugly heads so we have decided to sell. See my series Final Trip posted 27th- 30th April as we ‘went out’ in style with 97 locks in 8 days!
