Is the tide out? Is the dry weather starting to take a firm hold?
Well, no to the former and yes to the latter but this luxury GRP cabin cruiser is only an atmosphere creating addition to a small lake.
This boat which is becoming more weatherbeaten each time we see it, sits on a small island and frankly, is an eyesore, but that's only our point of view.
The lake certainly doesn't have the mystery and atmosphere of a Capability Brown landscaped estate lake but hopefully the reeds, grasses and plants will gradually overpower the boat.
If we get a winter like last year maybe it will just float away.
