Today is Bengie‘s birthday; she is 11! She is a very important member of the Take It Easy crew, and we love her dearly. On her special day, we have put her in charge of writing the post!
Ever since I was a kitten I have been on boats, cars, even planes! I am well travelled, but now we have moved on board Take It Easy. We started this new adventure in the middle of winter. What were the humans thinking? It gets really cold at night and they seem to take for ever to get north where it is warm. Mind you, they have piled up the layers on the bed and I snuggle under the blankets next to them at night!Of late we have had sunny days, when I can laze around in the cockpit, or in a sunny spot in the saloon and when we are anchored somewhere calm, I get to dinghy ashore and go for walks on my lead. I have got much better at this; even the dinghy trips don’t phase me any more, and I really enjoy running around amongst the dunes or in the tall grass. And this last week we have been at a marina. Now that is great fun. I can roam around the floating jetties and check out other boats. I like the ones with biminis and hidey holes where you can get out of the wind! And the good thing about the marina is the number of visitors turning up to say hello. I have to keep an eye out though, can’t just let anybody on board! Today is a really good day. It’s my birthday so I am getting a few extra treats! I don’t feel that old and I reckon I look pretty good for a ‘senior’ girl, but I do enjoy my nana naps! I don’t mind the odd chin tickle and scratch behind the ears, so do say hello in the comments and give me a virtual pat!
