I came up to the boat this afternoon, as I have a boat test first thing tomorrow morning. It was a lovely warm sunny day, and the marina was absolutely alive with swallows darting about and swooping over the water. They're also quite keen on perching on the boats, and seem to have a knack of sitting on the handrails and making a mess down the side of the boat! I got a cloth and cleaned off the worst from the pontoon side of the boat.
After a bite to eat, I walked down the towpath to Cosgrove, because I'd ascertained that Carol and George on Still Rockin' were still moored there.
It was great to see them and have a look at their vast new boat. It really is very wide! Sitting in the saloon, you could almost forget you were on a boat, there's so much room. But perhaps the best thing was to see how excited they were about this new adventure. Molly the dog was also great fun, doing a tug of war, and chasing balls around.
