Things that go bump in the night

Still moored at Berkhamsted

It's 8.30pm and its already been dark for four hours, I am sitting here thinking about today's blog when we were broadsided by some indescribable person trying to moor a large narrowboat in the dark. Admittedly there is some light from Waitrose and the carpark but it is still pretty dark out there. I know some people have time limitations on when they can shift their boats but they could at least be a bit more considerate and careful. How can you not see a boat with a five foot Christmas tree lit up with christmas lights adorning the cratch I'll never know. The last I saw of the boat was when he was trying to reverse back to the lock moorings which is a couple of hundred yards behind us.

Imagine attending a school such as this.

Other than doing some varnishing in a galley cupboard and going for a walk through town its been a quiet day.
