It’s the Queen’s day to-day but life continues uninterrupted by street parties on Rona, although we did stop to have a look at the flotilla on the rainy Thames on TV. I don’t suppose the blind stag was aware of the Jubilee first thing this morning.
Here he is outside the larder but very much alive. He’s been around Rona Lodge for years and we only discovered he had problems with his sight a couple of winters back. Often when we drove past him he would make out he saw us but invariably he was looking in another direction, only when he was right outside the house we discovered he could not see us waving at him and shining a very bright torch in his eyes. But he is happy to be around Rona Lodge so we’ll be happy to leave him alone. I finished the larder to-day so it wont be long before we have venison for sale to go with the veg’ and shell fish.
After lunch I ran out of steam but wanted to finish a few jobs one being the Wayfarer prep’. I think I might sell it as I’m not using it much but we will see.
After finishing the dinghy it was time to slow down, the weather was good but a very strong wind had sprung up again, it didn’t stop yachts leaving and a couple arrived later in the afternoon.
Better to be on dry land with a wind like that.
