Back in Marina di Ragusa - 2020

Nice to be back on Njord. She is looking so smart and beautiful after all her loving over the summer.
No-one will forget this year for sure.
Queen Elizabeth Gardens, Salisbury

Our frequent “lock down” walks often take us through these lovely gardens and we either circle through the water meadows or back into the Market Square.
Walk by the water meadows in Salisbury

Salisbury in the July sunshine

There are very pretty walks around Salisbury's city centre and lovely views of the cathedral can be seen from almost every vantage point.
Salisbury Water Meadows
09 July 2020 | Salisbury Water Meadows
Vic and I went for a lovely walk through the water meadows in Salisbury up to Harnham Hill. It was not a sunny day and did drizzle for about 10 minutes. It was lovely to see the sheep grazing in the meadows either side of the path, so close to the city and cathedral. Covid-19 lock down has eased a little and some pubs and restaurants have opened. We stay safe and wear our gloves and masks. It is amazing how many people don’t though.
Take care and stay safe everyone!
Maintenance treats for Njord
17 June 2020 | Marina di Ragusa
We may be in week 14 after the official UK lock down but Njord is still being loved.
Njord will have new safety equipment when we return. The danbuoy, safety light and jack stays, which are the deck life lines have all degraded in the UV rays. She also needed new taps in the galley and heads, which apparently look great. She is also going to have her teak decks given the borocol treatment which will keep them nice through the winter.
We had her sails taken away for the winter for washing and any repairs so they are still in the sail loft. That's good news as when strong winds blow across the marina often the air is clouded with a fine orange sand and it "colours" the sails as it gets everywhere, even though we have sailbags and covers when the sails are on.
