Best Laid Plans and all that.

Well what a start to the season, everything is ready, the boat prepared, a new on-line log book, the weather seems at last to be turning into something acceptable and along come a nasty little virus to put a damper on everything. And in this case I really mean EVERYTHING!

ConVid19, born in China and about to screw the world, more to the point our boating plans! As you all know by now this virus is in the process of changing everything we take for granted, what we do, how we associate, how we travel and more to the point how we live our daily lives with family and friends.

It would appear that the government, with our best interest at heart I'm sure, are going quarantine the over 70's for quite a long period. Not sure how that is going to turn out but at the moment it gives me 3 months to continue to enjoy life to the full, it's my 70th birthday on 22 June, one I had planned to enjoy full on but now looks like its me and the wife huddled around a cup cake (if they haven't all disappeared due to panic buying) with a glass of Prosecco watching endless news on the items on the BBC about the state of the world. 😞

In the meantime the plan is get down to the boat, get her out and enjoy the sea air, sunshine (hopefully) and the pure joy of being on the water. The best way to be quarantined in my book.

To all our family, friends and boating buddies, stay safe, keep calm and no more chinese takeaways, that'll teach them!! 😄😷
