At the Canal Foot

All set for the best view of the tide running in Morecombe Bay- and I missed it by 1 minute

One of the best views in the country has been in the Mr Physics family since July 15th 1976. It’s a gem of a place and one that has very happy memories. It is where Mr and Mrs Physics spent their wedding night, so it was with mixed feelings that on second of January 2020 it was sold and no longer in the family.

As the new owners were bringing in their furniture (a day earlier than the expected exchange date) we moved out. I decided to let the last view of the tide running be in extreme comfort and left the 3 piece suite on the terrace. Yet, despite setting clocks and watches and alarms, Mrs Physics missed the tide running by about a minute, meaning the main bore was away or behind the big conifer before I got my best seat in the house- well strictly speaking outside the house. It was only a 7 metre tide so wimpy at the best of times. At least I got one last sunrise and that was pretty beautiful.

Is this Sod’s Law or one of the others.

I hope the new owners enjoy the place as much as we have and make many memories.

Time to concentrate on boating which has been on the back burner for a couple of years.

Please don’t tell MIL her house has sold she’ll be devasted and it makes me feel cruel that we’ve done it, but we couldn’t keep it on and it was beginning to suffer. A new lease of life is needed.

It was sold for a bargain, so I hope the owners appreciate it even more.

New Baby Physics

We have a new baby in the family. It is adopted so looks nothing like its Granny but it is rather lovely. It is a Celestial or Pacific Parrotlet. It is only recently that I’ve heard of this type of bird and I must say, even in 24 hours I’ve been impressed with her big heart and fiesty nature, although she’s taken up most of the day and today (04/01/2020) we finally celebrated Christmas, although all the turkeys were gone, so a chicken had to suffice.

The little angel hasn’t got a name yet, but I know Piglet, when he thinks of one, will choose the best and most apt name going.

Nameless: eating well, pooing lots, thwicking,
Grab first, eat and digest after.

More updates as they come, especially the name.
