Lady Jane in Fareham
At low tide, Lady Jane is left sitting high and dry out of the water, the photo was taken as the tide was going out and Lady Jane was just squishing down into the mud, bear in mind she weighs 150 odd tonnes so it's a pretty good squish. Being on Lady Jane as she settles into the mud is a little disconcerting at the moment, as she sits differently to when she is afloat. I need about 5 tonnes of ballast sometime soon,to get that bow down to where it should be.
I've been meaning to buy a fishing rod and some tackle to have a go at catching some dinner when I'm aboard, and the tide is right. I often see people fishing across the creek from the edge of the golf course. My problem here is, although I've been fishing in all sorts of places in the world, I don't really know much about the fish caught here. The only way to learn is to jump in at the deep end, so to speak, I suppose.
Anyway, although we have not really been there long, Fareham so far seems to be a lovely place and I'm looking forward to exploring the area a little more and getting to know a few people locally. This is, after all, what the dream is all about - travelling to new places and being with friends both old and new.
