Glorious September

I always find the month of September the best, nature has settled after it's growth.
This is our 'Summer Row' at its best.
Then Josh was 12.

Got out for a drive

Ashlet Creek, near Fawley.  Molly went for a swim in the salty sea!
We just like to look at the boats.

Revisiting a canal

When I was travelling on our narrowboat exploring all the wonderful places I often thought when I was old and not on the boat that I would visit the waterways by car.
We went to visit the Melksham River Festival on Sunday and had a boat trip on the River Avon.
The Wilts & Berks Canal Trust is to restore the old canal to a navigable waterway.
We met our friends Terry & Myra at Melksham and went on to Devizes.
And revisited the Kennet & Avon canal.

I'm not that old yet!  Anyway we still have the boat, just not living on it.

Kitchen Diner

But it is not in the kitchen!  This is the prelude to our kitchen refit.  The wall cupboards are on the dining table.  Every thing needs to be moved out.  Some of it is in boxes on the floor.  Now where did we put the…...

Visiting the Boat

An opportunity to go up to the boat was possible after the bathroom refit.  Geoff and Margret were nearby and invited us on board for dinner.
Next day we volunteered our help to get them part way up the hill.

We then proceeded to rid the boat of all those stowaway spiders that got in when we were away.
After a sweep through Dave and Lyn paid us a visit.

We have now cleared the boat for 'summer' use.

New Forest walk

We got out on Sunday and drove to Kings Hat.  Then walked to the open moorland.

Marsh Gentian found near wet ground

Wot a relief

It is all finished and smart.
The kitchen is next month after I have saved some more cash!
By the way we plan to spend a week on the boat soon!
