Well, last night we all went to The Clifford Arms in Great Haywood which is where my late friend Lord Lichfield has a nice house and where we moored for the finish of our eventful first day cruising. This was for their supper. For, as humans, they don’t just eat biscuits with Chappie from bowls on the floor they have to sit at tables and sometimes, I am allowed under theirs. They spent quite a long time eating quite a lot last night and then complained that they had eaten too much too late and this meant they did not get to bed early as they had indigestion and this meant a later start this morning.
I had to assist at several locks today and as it is Saturday and as we are near several holiday boat hire depots you would not believe the traffic. At one lock and we negotiated 6 today, we were in a queue of five kennels waiting. These delays are really quite enjoyable and actually part of the fun as no one is in a hurry and everyone is friendly and so there is lots of happy social humans and most of them have happy social canines too that I play with.
Thus with a leisurely start this morning, some social delays at locks interspersed with the occasional hail and thunder storm our progress to day was not much more than 5 miles. I walked most of this when it wasn’t raining which was lovely.
Because they all got tired at about 4 o’clock we moored both long kennels for the night. We were in the middle of the countryside near a village called Sandon, it was very pretty and my long kennel and Micky Jay were all alone. Supper for all of us was hosted in my long kennel, prepared by my long haired one and her sister Mo, there were six of them for dinner and me.
I posed for my photo today it is my profile, I hope you like it and that!s me guarding my long kennel at a lock without a queue.
