    Well, we made it to Carrybridge in one piece and even still talking!

    "Did you say right or straight on?"

    Holly wanted to take us on the much longer route to Carrybridge. Luckily I caught the error with patient map reading and common sense and corrected our course. Never listen to a 14 year old driving a boat…

    Holly loves herself so much she takes her own photos. Shame she forgot the eejit in the background!

    It was a father and daughter sort of a day

    Holly and I took the boat from Bellanaleck to Carrybridge this afternoon while Adrienne drove the car round. Things started wrong – the starboard engine wouldn't start. I think the battery was run down on. Not sure why, because Austin managed to get it started easily last week. I'll have to call him to get some advice. We did the journey on just the port engine.

    But the trip was great fun with Holly… up to the point she took us the wrong way (went right rather than straight on). I had to take control and turn us back round. Of course in Holly's World, dad's are always wrong, so "it was clearly your [my] fault"!

    When we tried to dock at the public jetty in Bellanaleck, we had the usual shennanigans. Everyone shouting at each other rather than listen to my clear and masterful instructions (well, I am the Captain after all!) I hashed the first attempt then had to back up to turn her round for another go. If I hadn't shouted loud enough I think Adrienne would have been water skiing off the jetty with the bow rope as we went backwards. Thankfully she got the wild gesturing and bellowing calls and tossed the rope back on board.

    The second landing was a success so we only resorted to shouting at each other about tugging the boat forward to a better mooring! Ho, ho. Being in charge of a two woman crew is very stressful!

    Looking rather fetching in her hoodie, Holly looks for something to do… oh the life of the Rope Master (as Holly has named herself).

    I thought Holly was a bit, well, different. This proves she has a bit of the monkey about her!

    Holly can be useful

    Not that I really doubted it, Holly has some uses… as a scrubber! 🙂
