1st June – Wednesday
What is going on ?!? At last I’m out of the garage (tent) and being pampered. The usual, you know, ‘rinse, shampoo, rinse & dry’ but oh boy, that feels gooooood !!!! And it is about time too!
But, hang on a minute, some shenanigans are happening, from the corner of my headlamps I spotted Murielle parking Zebedee (the ZX) under MY tent!in MY space ! Oi, I don’t want to stay outside, the sky is gun powder gray and about to drop a lot of water over my roof. Has Murielle gone mad ?!? I DON’T WANT TO GET WET!!! ☔️
Suddenly the front door opens and my boot lid is lifted up. I can’t remember the last time this happened ! 😳
I don’t even have time to wonder what is happening that Murielle is already loading up the boot, camping chairs, tent, dry bags, clothe bags, it looks like we are going somewhere at last…
And then, nothing !!! I am waiting, and waiting, and waiting…. Humans are so hard to understand. What is going on? No one is telling me anything. Oh hang on, Chris is coming home and it’s not 6 yet, that’s early for him! Phew, at least now I know that Murielle isn’t moving out and they are plotting something together!
All of a sudden, Murielle starts emptying everything out of the boot, has she lost the plot? Mind you to lose it she would need to have it in the first place and I’m not sure that she does… Oh crumbs… she must have heard me, she is shoving a couple of metal poles under my back seats from the boot… easy there! Next she is re-loading the boot. I am so confused!
At last the humans exit the house and lock the door behind them, looks like something will happen at last. Murielle gets behind my wheel and points me towards the town, so off I co, purring with delight as the road stretch beneath my wheels. I am however, rather puzzled!
I got stuck in the commuting traffic on the way to the harbour but eventually made it there. Apparently, we are going on a boat ride… How exciting!
I am so excited that I negotiate the ‘S’ bend going to the Condor a little fast and banked like a motorbike 😎😈😎 arriving in style 😛 Nothing to do with the fact that Murielle likes to drive me like a lunatic, it was all me this time. Then, guess what, I have to wait again !!!
So I sit nicely in my numbered lane, waiting to be called through to boarding, until some big ape decides to come behind me and and shake me up and down, I nearly let gas through my exhaust! It turned out that the big ape is Chris’ brother who is on the same boat.
It is now time to board and I had to climb an extremely steep ramp that was so rugged, it made Murielle’s teeth rattle! And I still have no idea where I am taking them…
