Today’s picture is a selfie, ‘ thought you might like it! My bearded one was up at six this morning and he woke me up just so that I could take him for his walk, how mean is that! Although it was a lovely dawn. We have hardly seen a soul since we left Stratford, we have had the river Avon to ourselves and it is truly beautiful but I cannot leave my long kennel very often, only really at Locks. Anyway, we were off early this morning because he was up. We never saw another boat for several hours until we arrived at this lock where there was a man selling amongst other things bow fenders. I needed a replacement one of these for my long kennel and my bearded one negotiated a deal in euros as the only currency that he had, he got a very good rate! So pleased was he that he left his lock handle behind. We continued on our way towards Tewkesbury and at around lunch time we were passing through the village of Wyre Piddle, specifically the local pub’ called The Anchor on the river bank. Well, as my bearded one said, this is a no brainer and they had a very nice lunch, the landlady made a big fuss of me and I made myself at home. I told her I was a golden retriever. I don’t think she believed me. We didn’t make Tewkesbury.
