Sunday was another warm day and we welcomed Mattie and Dez to Idun! They arrived by midday, and after coffee and us showing them round we decided to take a trip down the river. We have been so lucky to have warm and rain free days so far. Poor them first of all had to help us getting the boat to the pumping out point where we were glad of many experienced hands (there’s definitely a problem with those holding tanks), but we hope that was negated by a lovely putt putt down to Hamble Point and back again. It is quite amazing just how many boats and marinas there are on this river.
On our return to Swanwick we had a long lunch sitting out on deck, enjoying a glass or two, while discussing everything from tv production, the Commonwealth and plant-based eating. Thanks for coming Mattie and Dez – what a lovely afternoon!
