We relented this weekend and switched the heating on for the first time this season. And oh boy were we glad when we awoke to frost on the port hole.
However with the prospect of a good photo I put my wooly socks on and broke the ice around the back hatch to be well rewarded with a stunning view.
A few evenings ago we we were shocked to hear three boats go past us between 7 and 8 pm. They weren’t even going slowly. We nearly fell out of bed when another went past at 10 pm. Then last night we thought it must have been a ghost ship, when we were woken by a boat going past at midnight! Why? Where were they heading in the dark? Who were they going to disturb when they moored up? Was it really necessary or safe?
