Fuel Glorious Fuel

Having just spent four months aboard Caxton, sights like these take on a whole new significance. If Caxton and Nb Matilda Rose had been nearby I would have been salivating at the sight of all this glorious fuel for the log burner - actually I think I was....
This is one of the local woods where I walk the dogs when we are land lubbing. The Forestry Commission were busy last summer harvesting timber but they and their contractors leave quite a lot cut and cast aside.
What a waste, as Ian Drury would say...

Though the other argument, as Granny Buttons would probably point out, is that it's not waste at all- it's providing a habitat for the wee bugs and beasties, and other species who make fallen wood their home.

There is no shortage of bug housing in these parts!

Anyway, the bugs and such will be just as happy living on Caxton's roof as in the wild woods.....:-)

ps. Have just taken two trees down in our garden - I feel like a murderer!
pps. We'll be keeping the wood and I'm not giving our address out to boaters:-)

You are a cruel woman Sue, tempting us with visions of wood a plenty and then thwarting us in the last line..

I will put some wood on Indigo Dream's roof and chuck you a log when we're passing!
