We meet a couple of Shipwrecked Sailors!

Hello Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and Mr Freddy de Ferret here!

What fun today has been, I've managed to tick off another boat and Holly tries to get a job as a 'Sea Dog'!

We were up early 'cos The Missus had invited Auntie Barbara for a days messing about with the card stuff!

We headed down to the beach and what did we see?

A Shipwrecked Sailor!

Ahoy Matey! Run out of water?
 It seems that they were on their way to Southend but had some trouble with the propeller and had to put ashore for some repairs!

That was last night and they camped overnight on the Sea Wall.

They went Oooh! and Aaah! At the ferrets and even gave Holly a stroke!

When we came back at lunchtime, they were getting ready to leave for a trip to Sheerness to top up on fuel!

Holly had a chat with the Captain and was invited to come on a trip across the Medway and act as the 'Old Sea Dog'!

Let me think about this!
I told her to go but the ferrets reminded that under the keel was a load of deep, wet, water!

She had a think and watched me splashing in the water and decided that she was going to become a 'Land Lubber'!

Thanks for the offer but No Thanks!
 After that I suggested she gets her tail wet by coming in for a dip but she refused that idea as well!

Come on in!
 After I got out of the water OTL got the book out and we ticked off the 'RIB' boat and OTL explained that RIB was short for Rigid Inflatable Boat!

Getting ready for a launching the RIB!
OTL spent the afternoon 'Manufacturing' while Holly and I polished of a big bowl of chicken each and crept off to bed for a well earned snooze.

Holly and I got a Chew as a treat for eating all our dinner but to be honest, both Holly and I were too full up to eat it.

Holly put hers down and rested her chin on it while I gave mine to OTL to put in a 'Safe Place' until I fancy a nibble later on tonight!

All the ferrets are fast asleep, so I'm off downstairs to see what is happening!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and Mr Freddy de Ferret.
