Bits And Bobs!

A good day today! This morning we had a trip into Pewsey (by car, although it is a 10 minute walk) for some post and cash then back to Epiphany for lunch.

Who should pass us but Ernie on Nb Ten Bob Note - a fellow blogger. He has been on the Kennet and Avon for a bit and we were looking out for him. We didn't wave as he was past us before we realised but got a quick photo!

Sorry Ernie, but we will keep a look out again!

This afternoon we went into Devizes for various jobs. Recycling at the dump, Focus for a few bits and pieces, Auto Factors by Coate Bridge (136) for oil and filters and finally down to The Three Magpies at Sells Green for drinks with the Bath Narrowboats guys and "other halves"! A really good 3 hours catching up as we haven't seen some of them for a while.

We got back to water up and hope to have an early start to go to the best place to paint the boat further towards Devizes! I won't give any clue to its location as if too many boats arrive at the same time it is not a convenient mooring. However those "in the know" use it on and off, trying not to annoy other boaters! The mooring is just at the right height to get to the rubbing strakes and paintwork below the gunnels!
