I got around to it, all syked up and got the paint pot and brushes out. Rubbed it all down in the morning, applied undercoat, had lunch and took Molly out for a walk in the sunshine.
We went up to the Crick Millennium Wood which was almost as high as Crack’s Hill.
Back on the boat I opened the tin of shiny blue. It was a bit windy and I hoped that the trees and bushes did not drop bits on the wet paint. There was a certain coolness in the air when I had just finished. And then it rained! Not much but enough to spoil the finish. Oh well it’ll be harder to get syked up tomorrow in order to rub down for a second coat!
