Spring Cleaning in the Autumn.

Friday 30th September, 2016 at Aston Marina.
A beautiful autumn morning with the mist rising from the water.
Today, we spent the time getting MM ready for the winter months ahead. R washed the outside - the roof, both sides, the front and the back - while M sorted and cleaned the inside and dealt with the plants and all the other items that we are taking home.
After a quick trip into Stone for a very "few bits", we took MM across to the service bay and, with the help of Nick the Moorings Manager, we filled her up with diesel and emptied the poo tank.
Back at our mooring, we continued sorting things that need to go home, things that need to stay on board and some bits that have come to the end of their useful life (M hasn't yet had the heart to part with those faithful lockwheeling gloves...!).
At the end of the day, we were treated to another lovely sunset over Aston church.
M sat down and went back through this diary to look at some of the highlights of this summer. The list was far too long to include here. We have been so lucky with the places that we have been, the things that we have seen, but perhaps most of all, the people that we have met. Truly, MM is so well named because we have met so very many wonderful people over the last few months.
In October, we are going to visit David in the USA; so, we have decided to "take MM with us". R declared that, at nineteen tonnes, MM wouldn't fit in M's hand luggage - but she said not to be silly, she meant that we should keep updating MM's blog while we are in America.
Good idea!
So, we will sign off now - but watch this space for more adventures later in October. MM is going to America (well, sort of...!)
