No Bursledon blog isn't breaking bad, nor have that particular family of mushrooms made an early season appearance. I dried Matilda Emilie out for a scrub and anti foul on a midday low water recently which meant getting up very early to move her off the mooring and down to the scrubbing dock at the yacht club at high water.
I rowed down river at around 6.00 on a perfect morning, the river was deserted and flat calm under a steely grey sky which soon burned off to reveal a glorious sunny morning, an early morning start on the sort of a day that lifts the spirits and feeds the soul.
