Billy has ishews.

Billy is a border collie, he lives on a boat moored just along from us.

He is a rescue like Beano, unfortunately Billy can be a bit unpredictable.

Billy and Beano are fine with each other usually but occasionally Billy barks at me and Beano doesn't allow that!

Billy has trigger words that upset him and make him aggressive, in fact he has a whole bloody dictionary of trigger words.

Including, hello, good boy, sit and stay!

I am enough

 Col thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful comments, I hope to don't mind that I haven't posted them online.

I accept what you say about Beano and my family, I was thinking more about husbands.

Six boats

 Six boats have cruised by today, one heading west the others heading east.

Four of these were hire boats and none of them hit us, all were travelling slowly.

One boater realised his wife wasn't carrying a bridge key so he passed the key to Steve who then passed it to the wife as she walked along the tow path.

The CRT spotter went past so our position has been logged.

Someone we moored near a few times last summer walked by with his dog Bobby, Beano  remembered him and leapt up, rushing to the gate, he was keen to go out and play, they played together for a long time.

Really? It's April!

 What a difference, I had to sweep the gangplank before Beano and I could go for a walk. Then I had to clear the snow from the solar panels!

Moving day

 We left the marina today, it was chilly and breezy during our cruise.

We travelled for a couple of hours and then moored up, we've not moored here before but space is very limited and we want to be moored up before the hire boats all set off tomorrow. We did pass a day boat as we were leaving the marina and were able to point out a submerged log ahead of them so they were able to avoid it.

There was glorious sunshine when we moored but soon afterwards we had hail and shortly after that, heavy rain.

I cooked roast beef for a late lunch and after we'd eaten we took Beano for a walk and now we are relaxing with a cold drink.

We will stay here for a few days  until the hire boats have gone and then we will move on. I need to walk back to the marina to collect my car at some point, as we will need milk and bread in a couple of days. I keep longlife milk and part baked baguettes for emergencies so we can manage. It's about four miles back to the marina and I'm sure Beano will enjoy the walk.
