And then...

...it rained! All day!

It's only a few months ago that we were told that we needed several months of persistent, heavy rain for the reservoirs to be replenished. Today, we drove past the Drayton Reservoir in Daventry, and I can't imagine that it can get much fuller. 

It's been very wet recently, but nothing like the amount of rain the doom-and-gloomers were talking about, yet this large lake is full. And some parts of the UK are experiencing serious flooding. I really think it's about time it stopped and gave us some summer!

So, once again, we spent much of the day in Kantara, feeling very cosy and dry. We ventured out to Daventry to pick up some light switches we had ordered - the brass plating on a couple in the boat has become severely worn. A TV for the boat arrives tomorrow, and the satellite receiver kit will be waiting for us when we get back to St Albans on Wednesday (car service and MoT, and dental check-ups), so we'll soon be able to watch TV like normal people!
When we return from St Albans, we intend to do some cruising - don't laugh!

  1. Have you gone for a 12 volt TV or a 240 volt one. Both have their pros and cons.

  3. Ours is dual voltage, to cover all eventualities! Good to hear from you, Mike.
