Stuck on the rocks

With another cold night, and a quick look out the window, we are still not able to move Derwent6..We have itchy feet now and have the urge to move on, never mind at least it gives us more time to relax. Which is what we did!
Yes we could have got provisions today, or even looked for wood, we could have walked up to the water point and filled a container up with water, but what the heck, life's too short.
Water is our biggest problem with this freeze, as we have always gone a week and then filled up. We filled up last Thursday. so know we will be alright till then, with the weather forecast saying it could be bad till next Wednesday, we have been very careful on how much water we use. It's things like, only three showers a week, only half a washing up bowl, flushing the toilet when needing to, and reusing water for other things. Don't worry though we can always fill the buckby can with snow and heat it up on the stove.
We are expecting more snow tonight and tomorrow, so we have battened down the hatches, and then I suppose we just wait....
