A Good Day

Sand base for third slab

Seven slabs laid, ready for tidying

There was a considerable amount of rain last night – something unusual over the past few weeks. Anyway, after I made an early start at working on the patio, the sun came out and the weather became quite humid. That didn’t stop me from laying seven paving slabs, after which I had time for collecting more sand from B&Q before the store closed.

Tomorrow’s BBC Weather Forecast is for rain in SE Essex. That will give me an opportunity for taking things easy after morning worship at Provident Baptist Church, Southend-on-Sea.*

Unfortunately the proposed sail with ‘Temagami’ on Monday has been cancelled. Instead, she’ll be returning to Pin Mill tomorrow afternoon. She’ll be making her departure from Walton and Frinton Yacht Club Basin at about 2.00 pm, an hour before high water. forecasts a SW wind of only 5 mph which will not make for exciting sailing, and doing it in the rain will not enhance the experience.

Great progress on the patio and I'm sure the staff of B&Q are happy to see you so often! Shame about the sailing -- hopefully your next trip will be on Pike.

Enjoy your Sunday,


PS Talking of B&Q, you might not be aware that they have a 10% discount scheme for over 60s on a Wednesday called the Diamond Club.

As you say, things are progressing. I shall have another chance of a sail on Temagami, but I don't intend sailing Pike until the patio is finished. The patio has the priority, or rather, my wife has the priority!
