Douglas Diary Monday 7th April 2014 We are still moored outside The Mermaid pub and my uncle Noah has left, he has gone to Cumbria. Now we are expecting my long haired one’s sister Maureen and her husband David to stay on board with us for a few days. They join us each year. They arrived at lunch time. It has been decided that it will be a good political decision to have lunch there today in The Mermaid so that they can ask, as the six of them sit down to eat, if it will be O.K. To leave their car in the car park for a few days. Naturally, I will be on guard duty but I might get lucky. Also near the pub is Wightwick Manor, a National Trust property where I have been before, it is very nice, I am allowed in the grounds but not the house. Apparently there is a good collection of pre-raphelite works hanging within. I expect the humans will visit there again today. It has stopped raining and is looking brighter. I was right and after they returned from lunch there was diddley squat for me! Then the heavens opened which delayed our departure. Then the sun came out and we had a beautiful cruise to Bratch locks. Sent from my IPad x
