We had a day at Norbury Junction making final arrangements for the work we're having done on the boat. We have finally given up on the brass portholes with their propensity to leak, rattle and run with condensation in the winter and we're having them replaced with alloy double glazed ones. This means that the cabin sides will need repainting and the bottom needs re-blacking. More expense. We're using the time she will be in dock to jet off to Tenerife for a couple of weeks. Until we actually fly we are just cruising up and down, Gnosall to High Offley and back, repeat as necessary.
Yesterday we took a morning constitutional round the lanes at High Offley. Autumn is definitely here,
It's a good year for the wild fruits,
Watch this space..........
