The top reading is inside the boat, the middle is a foot above the roof and the bottom is the time. Phew!
There’s been a bit of traffic up and down the river, but we’ve not joined them. Del and Al on NB Derwent 6 left this morning, so we moved back 100 yards to snatch their mooring. It has a better view than tucked behind an island like we were.
George and Carol had visitors today so we’ve not seen much of them, they took son Mark and family down to Pangbourne and back.
We had visitors too, a pair of Egyptian Geese turned up for breakfast, with a gosling in tow.
The youngster is the classic ugly
I gave Meg a good brushing then we had a shower (she can’t manage on her own) so she’s all fluffy and sweet smelling for a little while. I also left her a bit damp so she kept cool this afternoon as she evaporated off….
She’s got a sore paw; a grass seed had got embedded in her fur between the toes and had scraped the skin raw before I realised. It's caused a bit of an infection. There’s a vet in Pangbourne, so I’m going to try for an appointment as we go through tomorrow. It doesn’t seem to be bothering her too much, she’s still ready to chase a ball any time but it needs sorting.
