Well it has all been go here today. I think we are going to have a busy week ahead too...
We had two dayboats out first thing and we have had five boats go out this afternoon; Reflection, Phantom, Phoebe, Princess and Python. That has kept everyone busy really.
True to April weather, it has been sunshine and showers all day. Some really heavy showers and infact some sleet and hail at times.
We are working hard on the trip boat too. The majority of the carpet was laid yesterday and some of the tables and chairs are on their way back in this afternoon. I have been tidying up the back doors. There are some Roses and Castles on them that I want to try and keep, so I haven't touched them, but I have re grained them and the woodwork in the door holes. Steve has been fighting the elements to try and get some paint on. It's only to tidy her up for this season really, as we are hoping to give the outside a full make over in January.
Don't forget to come and visit next weekend and view her. If you would like to be at the unveiling ceremony and see our special guest steer her off up the canal, you are more than welcome to come and join us on the Wharf outside of our shop and tearoom for 12.30pm on Saturday 4th May. She will be available for viewing on Saturday afternoon, Sunday and Monday outside the shop on our Wharf. Further details of public and chartered trips will be available at the weekend in leaflet form.
The big question is what her name is going to be.....
