As promised we have spent the last two days getting the boat looking a bit smarter, both sides polished, although some of the scratches acquired whilst passing other boats in the more overgrown sections are still visible. There is nothing worse than the squeal of a tree branch scraping along the cabin side. Can you imagine the howls there would be if the roadside verges were allowed to become so overgrown that cars got their paint scratched simply driving along the roads?
The front well deck has been cleared, you could have planted spuds under the tiles. Jill has been busily cleaning inside this morning besides cooking up a batch of mince pies, her puff pastry would grace the dining room of a Michelin starred restaurant.
I was poring over the Ordnance Survey Explorer Map for the area (Map no. 240) last night when I spotted a Shropshire village called Knockin. It was too much to resist so I found it on the web and yes, it does have a village post office and store,
Moving on to Queens Head tomorrow.
