Wand’ring Bark has left the marina! We are currently moored on the Staffs & Worcs canal just by the Fox & Anchor pub which is pretty much our boating local. Tomorrow we begin our trip to Stratford proper but for now it’s rather nice to be back on board.
I have learnt a valuable lesson today though. Do not put the flour container on the sofa. If you do insist on doing so, use a container with a secure lid because boats rock. They rock due to the floating nature of them. And when they do, the flour will fall down. Bit like the bough breaking in the rock a bye baby nursery rhyme. So, today I learnt why lots of people don’t carry large loose lidded containers of flour aboard with them. Or at least if they do, they don’t leave them on the sofa. Still, I expect the large, dusty, white mark in the flooring (I would say carpet …) will disperse eventually.
Excited about tomorrow. Have made the Captain brush up on his Elderflower identification skills. Wouldn’t want him to mistake it for something else!
Hoping this mobile blogging malarkey works. We shall see.
