Garden Statues

SAM_0308bSAM_0309

We were walking past the recycling bins at Sainsbury’s this morning and spotted these 2 stone statues dumped in front of the bins, so we brought them back to our garden and made a home for them, we do love freebies!

It's nice that things like this are recycled.
I found a broken poker which I thought would do for a spare tiller pin!

Working boatmen always used pokers for tiller pins.

Our first first tiller pin dropped off as we were cruising along and we utilised a screwdriver instead, not very elegant!

Screwdrivers were very often used especially in an emergency. I used one for ages until I found the one I still have today. I drilled a hole in the bottom if my tiller pin and use a chain with rings (keyring rings) at both ends, one through the tiller pin and one underneath the tiller pin, between it and the tiller, stops it magically falling off :)
