From Great Expectations this has turned into a disappointing damp squib of a Summer with regard to getting out on the boat.
The planned internal works have, as is typical on the waterways, fallen wildly behind schedule and won’t now be completed until the end of next week. It’s all incredibly frustrating.
In posts I’ve tried to stay positive, but there are times when I just want to turn the engine, loose the ropes and get ahead again. I’m missing the water road and the glorious Summer evenings, and feel trapped at home with too many demands on my time and gorgeous sunsets to taunt me.
Today we’re off again. This time to house-sit for my sister in Derbyshire. High on a limestone plateau there’s little chance of watery posts, not least because the place has a lousy internet connection, however I’ll try to micro-post using the phone and see how I get on with that.
I hope your summer a-boat is faring better than mine?
