Douglas Diary Autumn Hols
Well there is an error I have to report, in my diary of yesterday. My bearded one announced to me and therefore I reported to you that we moored up for the night in a heavy rainfall about an hour short of our destination Cheddleton.
The former meteorological condition was correct but the latter geographical position was wrong.
I discovered this when I took my bearded one for his early morning walk. We were and are in fact as I write this, less than 100 metres from the start of Cheddleton, noted for a flint Mill, it is just around the corner! From the weather at the moment we are likely to stay for a while. I am now dry, warm and breakfasted (biscuits) I am wrapped up in my bath robe as illustrated last night because I have just returned from this exploration soaking wet and had a rub down. I like that bit one of my favourite things. My bearded one is dry because he had an umbrella. The weather shows no sign of abatement any time soon. Breakfast for the humans was late and leisurely.
There was a slight let up in the rain around lunch time and so we moved my long kennel to a favourite spot just the other side of Cheddleton at a house called the Boat. (See photo) I think my pets are going to take me there for supper tonight, well I will sit underneath their table while they scoff, and I will have had my Chappie and biscuits.
There is a steam train station here, about 50 meters from where I am writing this. I know they have bought me a ticket for a ride in it tomorrow I will tell you about it in my next entry.
