Bank Holiday

No joy sourcing a fan belt from 'Toad Hall' garden centre. The assistant was very helpful, but didn't have a lawnmower belt the length we need. So, we'll have to wait until the Reading shops open again tomorrow. But, Sonning is such a beautiful place to be 'stuck', it's not a problem. In fact, we both consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have met such friendly and helpful people.

Strange weather today. It's fiercely sunny again, which is a pleasure. But, there's a gale force wind whipping up the river, causing foot high waves. Looks like the English channel out there.

Had a comedy moment yesterday, when I took the shower taps off, only to realise that the pump was on, and the water was still under full pressure. I got drenched. Felt like the little Dutch boy with his finger in the dyke. Or a submariner, from a WWII film. I've never seen Sheena move herself down the boat so fast. Good way to test the Whale Gulper shower pump was working, anyway.
