As we have had complaints about the lack
of blogging we thought we’d better make another entry.
Today we have been doing the last few jobs
we need to do before we go sailing. Stephen woke up and strapped Anne in a
climbing harness. Anne then woke up and got the hint that today was the day to
climb the mizzen mast (the shorter one of the two) Anne successfully went up
and down the mast (twice) and installed a new Echomax radar reflector - hopefully
the Ferry’s in the channel will spot us now
comments: “Next time I’m going to choose somewhere with a view.
The bruises have started to appear and should be a talking point for
people if I wear shorts. As I had to go up and down twice I have a feeling
I may be on an enforced diet soon!”
comments: “Winching Anne was fine – it was the falling nuts
and washers that made life interesting!”
Stephen has also been attaching the anchor
locker lid while Anne recovered and started on a passage plan.
The cats have had a lazy day and been
asleep most of the time – no doubt they will want to wander around the
deck when it starts to get dark. Last night we got Yoyo back down into the
cabin and put in the washboards and pulled over the hatch ready for bed. A few
minutes later she had jumped out of the forward hatch which we had left open. I
think she is settling in to life on a boat a little too well.
