Rain rain go away......

As forecast the weather has taken a turn for the worse today. The various weather information sites for once all agree, rain until late afternoon.

So with a good mooring, we have decided to stay put and catch up on all those little job's that get left for another day usually. So I have had the hoover out, Ali has given the bathroom and now the floors a good going over and we have sorted out a few cupboards that needed going through. Bit of a cleaning fest really.

Thank goodness for the pram hood. I know these are not to every ones liking, but it works for us. Normally this is folded down whilst cruising, with the exception of the Thames, where it acted, minus the sides, as a parasol to shade us from the intense sun. Today it is up whilst we are moored, keeping the rear deck dry whilst we are tinkering. Also gives me a dry place to have the occasional Vape!

It is supposed to brighten up late afternoon and so hopefully, we can go for a walk into the village of Slapton, and maybe stop for a little refreshment!

Boats are still passing, the crew wet but on the whole cheerful and full of fortitude. With no agenda, it is nice upon occasion to sit tight, in the hope that the morrow will bring back blue sky, although the morning looks a tad damp! Still, we need the water.

Edit to say, by 1500, the rain had stopped and blue sky's returned. Looks like a walk into the village and a meal at the pub may well be on the cards. Yippee...

I (Ali) have been playing around with some of our photos this afternoon whilst it has been raining, the results of some of them are below.

Scary house ......
