Shop front in the summer

Its officially hot!

Its been a fantastic day, We couldnt have wished for better weather for Easter, I have been in and out most of the day and I have to say that it was officially hot outside just after lunch, We have a big turnaround of boats this weekend 21 in total including the day boats,so it will be the busiest weekend of the year for us so far, coupled with the weather its going to be mad here.

There have been a considerable number of boats around today, still not as many as you would expect given that it is Easter, We would normally see then queuing to get on to the wharf but just a steady trickle, I have even done a pump out today!

Lorraine has been kept busy all day in the tea room with the help of Caroline, We now have a Caroline and a Carilyn, that is going to get a little confusing at times! Lee has been kept busy with putting the final touches to the boat in the painting dock and he has started touching up a brokerage boat that requires a little TLC, Trevor has been cracking on with the sign writing and although it would not be my chosen style it does look very good, Bernard has been up to his neck in rudders,bearings, annodes, stern tubes and welding in the dock, Ralph has also been up to his neck blacking as he has had two boats to do today! David has been doing 'David' things, (I really must see what he gets up to) and Ange has been flitting between the tea room , the phones. the laundry, I even caught her running today, that's a first!

That's it from me today as it is far to warm sitting here so I am off for a cool beer.
Until tomorrow
