Hero

January 16, 2018

Today I got to be a Hero!  The #sun was shining brightly and the #day was looking good.  As I dried the seats on my balcony with the intention of #relaxing with my morning cup of tea, I noticed a #boat drifting helplessly downstream on the River Trent.

 

I jumped into action, grabbing my keys and slipping on my #"running shoes".  I had a half-mile #sprint to the #bridge to cross the river in order to offer help.

 

As you can imagine I looked like a hero jumping the gate (rather than opening it) to the cow field nearest the drifting boat.  In my mind it resembled a #slow-mo from #Baywatch.  I was tempted to rip of my shirt when the rope was tossed and reveal my #muscles in the morning sun... but I didn’t.

 

I caught the ropes (whilst shouting safety instructions to the old lady because I didn't want to have to dive in to save her too) and pulled the #boat safely to the side, even managing to miss the hidden rocks. They seemed pleased and thanked me many times.

 

When I got home my tea was cold, I was hot and my shoes had something brown on them! It is sometimes hard being a hero, but always worth it!
