Defending the ducks from the dinghy devils!

Normally when we sail away the humans and I like to keep moving and visit lots of different places. They haven’t sorted out the ‘work thing’ yet, so we always have to get back to our base marina within a few weeks. We’ve been in Portoferraio for four full days now though. We LOVE it here! The humans climbed the fort and learnt all about the history. I’ve made loads of new furiends all around the anchorage.

My newest furiends are a cute pair of ducks! I said to them last night if they came back today I’d feed them any bread the humans had left over. Ducks!

The only trouble was some sneaky dinghy devils came too to try and steal it!

Dinghy devil duck attack!

So I set to work defending the ducks while they ate.

Defending the ducks!

The gutless dinghy devils won’t come near the boat when they see me! I think it’s because I’m so fierce! It was funny to see them all make a ring and watch the ducks enjoy the bread! I’ve spent most of the afternoon laughing at the humans and enjoying the view here.


My silly humans really messed up. I’m giving them a day’s grace while I debrief them and make sure they’ve learnt their lesson, but tomorrow I’m going to confess what they did to all of you!

Have a pawesome weekend evfurryone!

Bisous, Bailey

  11. Way to keep those dingy devils at bay Bailey! Can’t wait to hear what the humans have done now. See you tomorrow!



  1. […] I’ve been enjoying the sunshine in the cockpit and watching over what’s happening in the marina. It’s so nice to have some quiet time to contemplate the big things in life, like how many cat naps to take a day and how to catch a dinghy devil! […]


I'd love to hear what you think....
