Oh! What a picture

Well at last we have sorted out the pictures....All we had to do was turn down the pixels on the camera when on a 2G signel. Here is Al in her favorite place playing with fire. (Just like she did marrying me lol) She has now got it down to a fine art and everyday we get a roaring flame and a toasty Derwent6.


Here are some more shots taken by friends of the launch party at Foxton Locks.









Today Fernwood came over and fitted the shelf in the Dayroom and changed the G4 interior lights to LED's. The wire is for the aerial for getting on line but we now have space for all those Nickleson canal route books and loads of others.
The washing machine now works fine after the transportation bolts were removed (funny that) and the bilge problem is the blow off valve on the heating system which will have to be replaced.

We are still stuck in the marina with another sharp frost last night, but things have warmed up today so we are hoping to move (all be it in the rain) tomorrow, even if it's just to fill with water and a pump out.
We have booked our tickets for going down south for Christmas and are looking forward to that.

The community in the marina is fantastic, we have only been here five minutes and we have had some Christmas cards already.

To get us into the Christmas spirit, Derwent6 has got some decorations on the front with some jingle bells around the lamp.
