For me, the first sign of Summer having officially arrived is when the poppies flower.

We're now moored back in Birmingham city centre, in the same spot as Friday night.  It was lovely to sit on the back deck last evening, chilling out with a beer and listening to the sounds of Reggae music coming through the open windows of one of the apartments above the boat. The sun was so strong and there were so many different foreign languages being spoken by passers by that we could have been in any European country, Paris or Amsterdam came to mind, rather than Birmingham.   Long may it last...................

Hi Yvonne, totally agree about "Elizabeth". Wonderful looking boat, must take some looking after, a real labour of love.
