Nice weather for Boating!
« on: July 20, 2007, 12:53:00 PM »

All this lovely summer weather we are having is opening up all sorts of new locations for us model boaters to sail our boats in. At this rate i will have my own lake in the front room :-\

Yes, down here in Surrey I've had 3 inches in the garage and around six in the garden. Mainly caused by a backed up sewer which is taking a long time to clear itself. It may be authentic to sail my model freighter in dilute sewage but I'll pass I think!  ::)

Well, yesterday afternoon I was buzzing around Chichester harbour in a small inflatable (just testing, you understand). It was a bit choppy and I omitted to wear my waterproof trousers so, two wet days in succession!

Really feel sorry for you sodden folk in the UK!  We have just come inside from sitting in the sun beside the swimming pool, slurping a bottle of pink fizz.

Now I shall BBQ a couple of chops from a wild boar and then go off to bed with the air conditioning set to cool me down....

It's a hard life but someone has to do it!

You must be in the Southern bit because according to my web weather guide, the top bits as cold as we are :o
