About a week later we cruised the boat down and I started cutting some of the wood and carrying it back to the boat.
Next thing I know the estate manager had driven down as he had received a phone call from the gate house that trees were being cut down!
He was pleasant enough as he could
see the only trees down were by his hand and that he could clearly see from fresh shavings what I had been doing. "Help yourself, it`ll save me some work" he said and after a chat he went to the gatehouse.
So another load of wood on the roof to be cut and split.
