Well I wasn’t the first one on the water point yesterday. I was woken by Rocket passing through, who himself would want to fill and empty so there was no rush. I turned over for another hour. I was reawakened by Dusty who invited me into the Jolly Boatman for breakfast. I said I would go for tea. He moored next to “It’ll never happen’ but in doing so passed my boat 5 times (back and forth pushing the ‘ice floes’ out of the way). He came back knocked on the door and said did I want a breakfast? Apparently Andy didn’t like the idea of me sitting drinking tea watching Dusty eat a full English and so provided for me also. The best Full English ever.
I walked Molly across the fields and stopped at Annie’s Tea Room to say hello. More tea. Going back to my boat I noticed that the other two boats had moved. I could not put it off any longer. I moved at the slowest pace I could to the water point where I topped up my water and emptied my black tank then off I went. I moored on a friends mooring in Shipton where I will stay for a day or two while I construct a box to go on my roof. I should have done it at the pub where there are benches I could use for sawing.
