Day 33 Lincoln City
Today is 4th September and the 4th day of summer! I woke early this morning with the sun streaming in my bedroom port hole (I have a nice bedroom, I sleep on top of the engine of my long kennel, it has underfloor heating!).
We are going to explore Lincoln today. That means a lot of walking – one of my favourite things.
It really feels like summer and we walked through the city, it is not large, we could see the Cathedral on the hill and we walked up Steep Street (aptly named) and I had to help my bearded one over the last hundred yards.
Anyway we got there and there was the castle as well.
Unfortunately I was refused entry on the grounds of ‘elf an safety or something, my humans were allowed in. My bearded one volunteered to sit with me outside at a pub while my long haired one and Mike went inside to learn all about the Magna Carta whatever that is.
It so happens that today is graduation day for all the bright young humans from Lincoln University and the ceremony is to be held in the castle after a service at the cathedral. We had a grand stand view from my table outside the pub see photo.
They took turns at visiting the Cathedral whilst I guarded the table outside the pub’ that had the grandstand view of proceedings. After it was all over, we went down Steep Street to the canal basin where they had lunch at a floating restaurant called “the Barge”. I sat under the table, no lunch.
In the afternoon whilst my long haired one did a bit of provisioning (Chappie and biscuits I believe) my bearded one and his friend Mike, washed and polished one side of my long kennel.
When we were altogether again we set off on our cruise back to Saxilby where we intend to stay overnight ready for our departure on The Trent tomorrow.
My photos today are: the graduation procession from The Cathedral to The Castle, inside The Cathedral, part of the canal through the City called ” the glory hole”. Me sitting at the castle entrance having been told I could not enter!.
