Thursday 31st. October, 2013 -- Hallowe'en 

Ilkley Moor

Slept in again before walking Mix and counting 97 boats in the marina today. Went about the ship-board chores. I emptied the toilet cassette, while the engine was charging the batteries.

We drove to Ilkley where we walked the dogs on the moor – around a pond which Rachel remembers from childhood. I ’phoned Mum because she spent her honeymoon here.

On the way back to the boat we stopped at The Bull for a meal: cauliflower fritters followed by fish and chips.

Back on board, the weather turned nasty – it rained and rained so we settled down with our books. I read ‘The Treasure Hunt’ by Andrea Camilleri, and beautifully translated by Stephen Sartarelli. It is one of Camilleri’s best Montalbano books and I would recommend it to anyone. Walked the dogs and got to bed around half-past ten.
