Snowdrops and Crocuses

It's been another sunny day here at Norbury. It's good to see that Spring is really on it's way. Snowdrops and Crocuses are coming into bloom. Whilst the Daffodil's are just starting to poke through.

The residents at Wharf Cottage for this week decided to take the opportunity to have a day out aboard Defiant today - it certainly has been good weather for them. They opted to go towards Wheaton Aston, but turned at High Onn and headed back to Gnosall for lunch. There's four pubs in Gnosall - The Boat, The Navigation, The Royal Oak and The Horns. The first two are the closest to the canal and well worth a visit. From the bay window at The Boat there is a brilliant view of the canal.

Mandy and Amy have been busy prepping Ember for her final coat of varnish, which will be applied tomorrow once all the surfaces are sanded, tack ragged down and allow the remaining dust to settle.

Paul saw the day boaters on their way and has been doing the winter maintenance on Sovereign Lady and Princess. Bernard has been in the dark depths of the engine hole on Python and Princess.

Ange has been making curtains for Ember and Princess. I really don't know where she gets the patience from to sit sewing some 20 odd pairs of curtains - I certainly couldn't do it!

The suns certainly brought the crowds out today - well not as many as in the summer months, but certainly enough people to keep us on our toes!

Lets see what tomorrow brings!
