Cold and Frosty morning!

The fire went out last night for some unknown reason but we did have a good night. Thank god for the central heating which allowed us to get up and relight the fire. There was a heavy frost on the ground and roof of Derwent6, and the sun was shining in through the portholes, it was very pretty outside. Del waxed the roof and did some brasses while Al cleaned the inside. Then the whole world fell in and the weather turned so quick and before we knew it it was snowing a blizzard, why, because Del done the brasses. We soon had about a inch of snow on the gunwale. Thirty minutes later the sun came back out. Weird!
We closed the doors and snuggled up as the wind started to pick up and it just got colder. We listened to the radio in the afternoon, something we hadn't done for a long time. In the evening we watched a bit of telly and got into the Christmas spirit with a bottle of wine.....

So in September your boat will be on view in the office of All Marine Spares. Sydney. Australia.
