Today is the first day that there has actually been time to write a quick blog! Since Crick we seem to have been endlessly busy taking calls, showing people round and of course thanks to the inclement weather, continually cutting and strimming the grass which incidentally is coming along very nicely indeed. (Not that surprising considering the amount of rain we have had!)
We had planned our first "boaters" barbeque last Friday, the 'ap' on our phones showed the forecast to be non stop rain, which it was at lunchtime when we took the decision to postpone our debut event. Typically almost as soon as we had contacted everyone, the rain stopped for the rest of the day! We were hugely disappointed, but hopefully there are plenty of hot, sunny days ahead to be able to reschedule.
Our little families of geese, swans and moorhens are all progressing beautifully and have grown so quickly. One enthusiastic bird watching boater even booked a narrow boat mooring on the strength of the numbers of different species of birds he saw including a real close up of a red kite. What undoubtedly helped to clinch it too was the spitfire flying above which was truly a wonderful sight to witness.
Darla Rose continues to attract visitors to the marina on Sundays, which is great news, and each week she has a totally different cake on offer.
As a reminder, we have three open Sundays coming up over the next three months, Sunday 3rd July, Sunday 7th August and Sunday 4th September - Why not pop in?
