Every morning about 0600, Pete feeds two ducks by throwing suet pellets and mealworms over the side. The other day he was not feeling too good so got up really late. The ducks had obviously got fed up with waiting and were on deck, tapping at the back door. Cheeky little mites! Before you ask Pete is fine now. As you can see, we have beautifully wide decks. This is one of the features that attracted us to the barge in the first place. They look at bit scruffy now, but we are planning on going over to Bradwell so that the barge can be lifted out, hull and decks shotblasted and painted. When will depend on selling Carpe Diem as it will not be a cheap job. We will have her surveyed again at the same time.
One of my new jobs is in Dovercourt, right down on the seafront. I don't know how I am going to concentrate when my working view is like this.
