Bondage

The boatyard talks of little else than the progress of Typhoon Maria. She is a category 4 typhoon, this means big boy stuff.   It looked as if she would come right over Okinawa, but as of this morning she has turned South and is headed to Taipei.

Usual mixed emotions – you think phew but also rats, as you want to be involved in strong stuff.

Nonetheless there will certainly be a big storm on Tuesday.  I tie down the boat.

She is also full of water, so I feel confident that she will not fly across the boatyard onto a very expensive yacht

I visit Kano san, who you will remember, is a retired schoolteacher and Arthur Ransome expert.  He has two boats, a sailing boat named Cutty Sark, and a big Motor Cruiser.

Cutty Sark, he turns out to be a Burns fan.

He also owns this big Motor Cruiser.

Anyway, we are standing on the rear deck of the cruiser discussing the film version of Swallows and Amazons https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFl3ZhCjCig when suddenly the deck gives way and I crash down into a storage area.

The whole hatch gave way under my huge mass. The wood was rotted.

Sorry!

I make a big Pig’s Trotter Terrine to get over the shock.

Served very cold, this is excellent hot weather food.
