Shop front in the summer

Sunday, 9 March 2014

It was only yesterday, driving through Norbury village that I noticed blossom starting to appear on the trees. There's quite a few cherry trees and their pink blossom is just delightful. Ofcourse the crocuses and snowdrops are in full bloom and the daffodils are just starting to show their heads. I think Spring may have sprung!

It has been a glorious day here at Norbury today. We had three dayboats out first thing this morning, two heading south towards Wheaton Aston and the other north towards Goldstone. The sun has been out all day and we have had brilliant blue skies. There has been plenty of people around; walkers, cyclists, boaters, taking advantage of the sunshine outside on our Wharf, enjoying a cup of tea and coffee. There's been full English breakfasts, bacon baps and not to forget plenty of homemade cake being consumed. That's kept Denise and Mrs. Handbag busy with help from both Ange and Sylvia for part of the day.

Bernard and Peter swapped the boats on the dry dock this morning, which Peter pressure washed. Bernard has been working on one of the hire boats, changing the exhaust silencer, which started to show signs of blowing.

That's it from me today.

Regards, David.
