Even this



picture, taken in the April floods can't ease itch to get back on the water. jennylyle took it from the bows of her boat, looking across our narrowboat to the road used by boaties with cars to get into town. Yes, those lamp posts mark the route of the road, and the car park and are not planted in the middle of a lake to illuminate it at night. The walkways down to each of the mooring pontoons are usually at an angle of about 65 degrees (upwards, not downwards as they appear to be here). Any boaters who were living aboard that month had to be ferried by rowing boat to do their shopping.

Ah, it all adds excitement!

It's not my idea of boating, though. Stuck in a marina for weeks on end, going nowhere because the rivers are flooded and the locks closed - it's not why we boat.

BtW, there's so little to be done to the stuff you sent me, it's not worth sending back until you've written more.

Wow. That makes a change.

I'm just stuck in dialogue as usual.

I suppose. I thought I'd more than that. :S

Well I have done it once before. You've added one scene since then and a few notes to self.

Eep, you're a far braver woman than I. That picture's just plain scary! I'm sorry you're missing it, though. Do you know when you're next likely to be shipboard? (And if that's a ridiculous landlubber expression, I apologise!)

Crossing everything for sometime shortly after the 18th of this month, returning late October, or possibly late September, depending on where the building contractor sees fitting us into his schedule to do our garage-to-study conversion.
