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.

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.

    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!

  4. I enjoy reading your travel stories, looks like you have picked a good spot
