Day 3 Atherstone – Ansty.
The rain has stopped I am pleased to say, it is another lovely morning and as I was very tired after yesterday’s exertion in the rain, I let my bearded one sleep in until 07:15 before taking him for his walk. By the way, last night they left me in charge of the long kennel and went to The Red Lion Hotel for supper. I got Chappie and biscuits – again. Another thing, I forgot to mention yesterday, during a dry spell around midday we travelled through a working boat rally at Alvecote Marina which was fun and this is my first photo. The second photo is of The Greyhound pub where we stopped for lunchtime refreshment today at Hawkesbury Junction where we left The Coventry Canal and joined The Oxford Canal on our way to Rugby. This is where we will have a change of crew. Tonight we are staying in Ansty, a pretty village with one pub called The Rose and Castle. Unfortunately my bearded one may have upset them when he was told that dogs were not allowed inside. He said that he only supports dog friendly establishments and left. The trouble is my long haired one and Olaf and Jette returned and booked a table. It looks like I will be guarding the long kennel again and my bearded one will be joining them in disguise.
