When we hear a giant "thud" on the boat we often will find it is a Blue Heron that has made the sound. They are very timid and will re-arrange their heads to all sorts of positions to see where any noise is coming from. This one let us watch it for about 15 minutes!

What to do when your ancient hot water bottle starts to perish?
Well, I asked the kids for a few suggestions and we came up with this and thought it was a good idea-
.....The pot mat..... (or trivet as it's sometimes called- even though a correct trivet will have 3 or more legs to which to stand the pot on)... but who needs legs for your trivet! It's just more to store!
|Step 1: Cut around the edges of the sides of the hot water bottle and you get two mats out of each bottle!|
What a deal!

|Blake's thought making a snorkel out of the offcuts was also a great idea. I told him he |
might have to do some trials before he tries to sell them.....
