Following the sale of a barn, Justin and Lilian have money burning a hole in their pocket. They considering buying Double Bill, an eventing horse, and Lilian insists that Jakob does the pre-sale checks. With a ferry booked to the Isle of Wight, Justin is keen to head off before Jakob has completed his assessment and they agree that Denise will send them the results.
Once on their way, Justin reveals his own ideas as to how to invest their money. He’s not keen on mixing business with horses and eventing reminds him of his ex-wife Miranda. Instead, he proposes buying a yacht and setting up a Damara Amside racing team. He’s noticed Lilian light up when she remembers her time in Guernsey and recalls her telling Mandy Beesborough about having a great time with the yachting crowd there. Justin has no sailing experience but he’s determined to spend the money on something Lilian will really enjoy. But Lilian doesn’t appear bowled over by the idea.
With Jim away with Fiona, Jazzer and Tracy plan to spend time off together at Greenacres. Tracy wants to spruce up his bedroom but Jazzer’s not keen so he tarts up some old loungers for them to use in the garden. Meanwhile, Alistair has agreed to look after a client’s dog while she’s in hospital. He warns Jazzer that Mousse, a Westie, doesn’t like strangers, but she transforms into a happy dog with Jazzer, and he wonders if it’s Alistair that Mousse doesn’t like.
