|Heron just happened to be in the picture. Not deliberate honest folks.|
|A before and...............|
Been a productive sort of day. On the lookout for a decent mooring so Ian could paint the gunwales, we only traveled down two locks. The perfect piled edge with nicely mown grass showed itself before Horton lock so having left at 9ish we moored by 10ish. My job was wash and polish the cabin side. Took over two hours but really pleased with the shine. I had nearly finished when Julia and Richard showed up (Jules fuel boat and butty) coming up the lock. Taking advantage of the price of 69p ltr we managed to get just 50 ltrs in the tank. Always good to keep it topped up especially when a diesel boat turns up. The saying goes 'if you don't use them you'll lose them' and we don't want that, now do we!
|Lovely shine even though I say so myself.|
|What a difference when the gunwales are painted. Almost like a new boat!|
Not sure what we will do tomorrow. Another decent piled edge on the Starboard side would be nice. I could get the polish out and Ian the paint. A lot depends on the weather as the met office reckons it's going down hill again.
