Jobs and chores

The Met. Office weather forecast is for a break in this very windy/wet weather on Monday so I think we will be pulling pins and heading south towards Ely.  The time here around Denver has not been wasted of course with plenty of walking being undertaken by a pack of dogs and the female contingent of the boat crews... Here on Caxton we have also washed the curtains, rubbed down the donuts (the internal wooden liners for portholes) and varnished them, rubbed down the side hatch doors and undercoated them in preparation for a colourful paint finish; rain stopped play or this job would have been completed by now.  The cratch board is also going to be painted - it is currently varnished - as paint will keep looking good for longer and the added colour pleases the eye - well my eye anyway.
