Default Lady Emma gets a spring clean

Went up to the boat Wednesday and pressure washed her topsides down for the first time this year.

Removed all the winter grime, bird poo and Sahara Desert from the grp.

She still needs the canopy and fenders cleaning and a good polish, but she is looking a whole lot better already.

Lovely start to the day on Thursday and a nice coffee to start the day.

Met up with a few of my friends at the marina and we took Lady Emma out for her first run of the year.
Not sure how but Lady Emma seemed to steer herself towards the pub

Well.....all that hard work from the previous day called for a nice cold one (or two) to re hydrate the system

A gentle run back to the marina and time to put Lady Emma to bed.

We get very big skies here don't we! I often wonder where all the water comes from to keep the boats afloat at Acle, with all those farmers nicking it to water their crops! You'd think that we would be tinder dry after some of the long, sunny spells but that watter keeps on a flowing!

It gets its fair share of rain when I turn up usually

Been prepping my boat this weekend, four more days left at work then I'll be out cruising until August/September. Think I will go to Liverpool then Llangollen.

Filled up with red diesel today, that's gone from £1.00 to £1.39 a litre in six weeks. If it keeps going up I'll have to get an 'orse.

Tell me about it!

I’ve got two 320 litre tanks on Lady Emma.
I won’t be saying to the fuel attendant “Fill her up” anytime soon
