It was a beautiful morning with not a cloud in the sky and it was warm. We all decided last night while at supper in my kennel, that we would have an early start today to make up for our slow one yesterday. I therefore took my bearded one for his walk early this morning and by 09:00 we had breakfasted and were ready to depart.
My photo today is me visiting Micky Jay to tell them we were ready for off, by looking through their window and looking cute and appealing as well, I got a biscuit from my friend Barbie. She loves me and I love her.
The journey to Stone was so beautiful and I walked most of it. There were four locks as we cruised through the village of Stone and we stopped for a coffee break (ugh) before we tackled the next four then we had lunch and I then had a nap for a few hours, I am not as young as I used to be, in fact, I have been doing this all my life and I am now nearly 60 dog years old.
My bearded one and his mate David stood gallantly out on the Poop deck all afternoon, as the weather deteriorated into mild rain as we cruised to our destination aided of course by my long haired one and her sister Mo supplying refreshment, sustenance and a superb lock keeping service.
Now, I just want to raise a point: there seems to be an absence of comment from all my friends. I hope I haven’t upset anyone but I am afraid you have to register to comment and instructions are on the first page. The reason is, my webmaster advisor Noah says this will stop unwanted spam (I like spam and I like sausages). I hope this will not stop you all writing.
We are now safely moored in a park with trees and squirrels at the start of the Caldon Canal which we are entering tomorrow.. my bearded one is drinking a G&T whatever that is.
