Shop front in the summer

Saturday, 18 August 2012

I'm sorry that I didn't blog yesterday evening, but the time just seemed to run away. The weather was very mixed- one minute the sun was out and the next it was throwing it down with rain. What else can we expect - we do live in the England!

Today's been another mixed day, but as I write the sun is shining down on us. We've had a busy weekend so far. Two day boats out yesterday and three out today. Two of the boats are in convoy with one of our long term moorers who are celebrating their fiftieth wedding anniversary this weekend - Congratulations to Mo and Sid on Terhou.

We turned five shared boats round yesterday along with three hire boats that went out. We've had seven hire boats go out today and by Monday the remaining two hire boats and Wharf Cottage will be out meaning that the entire fleet will be out and the basin should; in theory, be empty.

Everyone has been kept busy - Fred has been on his normal pumpout, diesel, gas and water duties, ably assisted by Will. Simon and Bernard have had their heads in the depths of the engine bays whilst Mick and Billy have been checking the internals. Joyce and Sarah having been cleaning along with two girls that Ange had recruited. Ange, Denise and Lorraine have been looking after the shop, tearoom and answering the phones.

It looks like it is going to be a nice evening, so enjoy yourselves.

Until tomorrow...
