Day 4 Ansty – Rugby
Well, this is what happened. Last night they went to the pub, my bearded one in a pretty poor disguise (see last night entry) and apparently they had a lovely meal. My long haired one brought be a mouthful of chicken back because I was left in charge of the long kennel.
Summer has returned to England, it is a lovely warm day. I took them both for their walk before breakfast and then we started our lock free and gentle cruise into Rugby town center about three hours away. My picture today is of me (I am on the left) helping our friend Olaf at the helm on the last leg of his holiday with us. He did enjoy the driving.
We stopped at The Barley Mow for a pleasant and leisurely last lunch at Newbold Tunnel. They ate their meal in the pub garden where there were lots of noisy little people jumping around on what was called a bouncy castle. This looked fun but I wasn’t allowed to join in and I got no lunch. Their lunch was interrupted twice because my bearded one was called to re-moor my long kennel Albert as it had drifted free on two occasions. This was because passing boats (travelling too fast) had pulled the mooring pins adrift. A hazard not unknown on bank holidays!
Today we say good bye to Olaf and Jette after a very enjoyable four days. We found a very pleasant and lucky mooring right in the center of Rugby in Boughton Park. This is just over half a mile from the railway station and we walked with Olaf and Jette to catch their train to East Midlands Airport and their onward journey to Malaga tomorrow.
