About an hour after returning to the boat, I heard this weird noise. a bit like a long drawn out hooting , and then I heard a reply, and there was no doubt the reply was a fox. but I have never heard a hooting fox before. I immediately dragged Mick and crabby Finlay out for another walk, to see if I could get a sighting of the foxes, but of course, they would have heard and smelt us( not that we smell, we had just showered !!) and old foxy was moving off through the woods.
It rained a little in the night, and so this morning we moved up to Denver Sluice for our morning crossing tomorrow, back into the middle levels. and we have heard that this time next week, we could be installed in The Lodge ( still trying to think of a name for it. Mick doesn't care for the naff names I keep coming up with !!!!) Will keep the blog going, now that I have started as some of you may be interested in seeing the largish shed that we have bought ????
Today - Friday, we have moved on through Salters Lode. The turning off the sea bit and into the lock is a bit tight, and Mick over-egged it and we hit the side with a big bang. ! I nearly lost my big wooden mushroom,off the top of the boat and a few things went crashing to the floor inside . However, the bloke on the Sea Otter boat who was waiting in the lock for us ( nice boats, but we could crush them with Trundle), informed Mick where he had gone wrong. ! however, as we have done this crossing before with much the same result, we knew EXACTLY where we had gone wrong.thank you so much.Heres a pic of Trundle and Crabby Finlay .
So of into the middle levels again. we are now minus a tv aeriel. It got wedged under a bridge and disappeared into the depths. well we need a new one anyway, and that one was very cumbersome.
