The weather continues to be good but you can feel and see the winter approaching rapidly. The leaves are dropping from the numerous trees around the boat and the brilliant autumn colours will soon be replaced by bare branches.
We have been surprisingly very busy the last few weeks. The logs have arrived but they need to be sewn up to fit on our small fire and there are many of them.
Picture showing our joint post box, the new chimney and the pile of logs waiting to be sewn up and by the way the recent glorious weather.
Gladys is enjoying the leafy walks and the roaring fire on her return; I am coming back as a dog.
We made a visit to Montceau last week and were surprised by the lack of boats on the moorings.
The good news, for Montceau, is that Catherine and Isabel are back so at least those that are there will get good service from the office. Unfortunately, the night club at the port is still operating so the noise problem persists so therefore the live-aboard boaters have up and left.
To finish, and to the probably irritate my friend Marco I show one further glorious sunrise yesterday.
