My Ducati 750 is quite the perfect motorbike for what I want. its V twin engine is soooo torquey lot of grunt and plenty of engine breaking makes for a easy smooth ride.
Its not the rocket ship that my other bikes have been but on today's road there is less opportunity of enjoying the performance of such bikes.
So today was bikes not boats.
Now on to the purchase of Waterlily.........

Fire on, soup in our belly and the first blog from the boat - makes me a halfway liveabord blogger.

So over to you Ms Bones.... any idea what I found?
A video to help the identification
A big thank you to John for indulging me in the weired request - hey John, can you photograph the skull I left behind on your bathroom window and email it over to me......
Looking at these again she was (is) a nice boat inside. We had spent a long weekend getting her clean inside ..

But nicest pub (to date ) is another Greyhound at Burston, between Weston on Trent and Stone. The walk through the village is a nice aperitif for the beer or meal. I do think that memories of a few nice times in the pub also help.
Good old beer.....
When Grandpa is away....... (on the toilet)
The Grandson and son in law come out to play.......
Spot the common theme..... ;-)
It is one we will be stopping at later this year when we head that way to do the Macclesfield

I have been away visiting friends in Jockland - beer and computer gaming (we took our anoraks as well) a good change of scene, but I am starting to get withdrawal symptoms.
Not canal related but a fine view never the less.
Plus we found a message in a bottle - which I will scan in for you to share and a skull that I left in Scotland but will recover it for Bones, hopefully to provide an identification.
I will get back onto the sale of Comet soon....... promise
