There's always tomorrow.......

Well I was going to do a few jobs on the boat today, it being one of my days off. Its time to take down winter curtains and put up lighter ones for the summer. I was going to give the bathroom a good clean and change the bedding and then I saw the sunshine. John is off work for the Easter Holidays, so we decided as the sun was shining we would take the boat out for the day. A nice day was had too! We couldn't go to far because I am back in work in the morning. We just went to the Red Lion Caravan Centre in Scarisbrick. Its a cruise that's just long enough if your limited with time. We stopped off to have a chat with another boater and then moored up in what we locally call the Rock Cut, a stretch of Canal between The Ship Pub at Haskayne [Ship Bridge 22] and The Saracens Head at Halsall [25 Warehouse Bridge] The Rock Cut is a nice place to moor up, it has high banks which give good shelter if its windy as it was today. It was a bit on the cool side but the sun refused to give in to the clouds so it was a really pleasant couple of hours. The bonus being we managed to dodge the rain clouds! Bobby our Scotty, loves being out on the boat. He just trots up and down the roof taking everything in. He often will trot up the roof to the front of the boat put his nose up in the air to sniff and looks like a little figure head. People don't take any notice of John and I at the back of the boat they say Hi and smile at Bobby! We don't mind He's our little star and is as cute as a button! He looks comical when he's on the roof and trots from the front down towards us at the back. With the boat moving forward he looks like he's trotting on the spot! I made us Lunch while we moored in the Rock Cut. A tasty omelette made with whatever I could find in the fridge. Bacon, mushrooms. Onion and topped with cheese. Served with bread and butter and a cuppa. Deeelish! Well the curtains didn't get changed nor the bed but hey there's always tomorrow!!
