Where did all the water go?
How has your day been?
Ours has been one of being on the tilt. It all began after we got up this morning, when a lot of water began disappearing from beneath us and all the other boats in the Arm. We measured the drop and it had gone down by Twelve inches and was to drop further. We sent a photograph and an e-mail to our local C&RT man and he got back to us. They were going to send some water down. Other boaters rang C&RT asking for water. Of course these things take time.
In between moving the boat out, I helped out with sorting the teddy tombola and raffle prizes for the forthcoming Heritage Weekend. Teddies got number stapled to their ears. I did apologise to them before inflicting any pain. Jack and I are so ahead of the game it is brilliant. Now we are just hoping the weather is kind to us. Sadly Shrek the horse will not be with us, because he is poorly, which is such a shame. But we will have a lot of fun anyway.
It has been a funny old day, but we will see what tomorrow brings.
Pop back soon xx
