The boatyard we are using this time is undergoing
major re-development so had limited facilities when we hauled
out. We stayed a few days in a nearby holiday apartment before
flying back to the UK.|
Coming out the old fashioned way, tractor and trailer, with a couple of divers in attendance . . .
. . .while the boat lift was busy manoeuvring bigger fish!
We had time for rope scrubbing, in an improvised bath (no washing machines here yet)
The English summer comes as a refreshing change from the humid heat of the tropics. From time to time we check the hurricane warnings on the US Government National Hurricane Center website but there's not a lot of point as we'd not be able to do anything but worry if one was heading for Grenada!
View from the apartment - Stanley's House
We've been staying in Evesham most of the time and started cycling again to keep fit.
One of our destinations is (surprise, surprise) a riverside pub, where we watched the raft racing on the River Avon
While visiting Lynda we went to Wimpole, a National Trust property where she is a volunteer. The grounds are lovely for walking and the farmyard very popular with children of all ages.
Wimpole - a majestic pile indeed . . .
. . . complete with bacon factory
It will soon be time for us to head back to Grenada.
