The forecast for today (that we saw on TV last night) was pretty grim after a beautiful day.
I woke my menfolk for their early morning stroll, after a very long sleep I might add after yesterday’s mammoth walk, as it had stopped raining. By the time they had put their shoes on a very slight drizzle had arrived, by the time we were 200 yards from my long kennel it was better described as light rain, at 400 yards it was heavy rain at 425 yards – a downpour! Of course, too late. Making haste back to the warmth of my long kennel was a lost cause and we all got into trouble when we arrived for being stupid.
A further check on the weather forecast said it would be dry by 10:15 and it was. This left ample time for a good breakfast and a comfortable departure.
We only had two locks to negotiate and about three hours of cruising to arrive at our home base King’s Bromley to complete this part of our summer holidays.
We stopped at The Ash Tree where the humans had a very satisfactory pint (and a half) of Bank’s from Mr Marston and they had lunch on board. I got nothing.
The sun was shining as we cruised into our Marina and moored up for the end of our cruise. Peter is leaving us and we leave my long kennel tomorrow morning.
We have a week left in England and tomorrow we leave to visit my long haired one’s daughter and her family and their new house.
It would have been very rude not to ask Peter for a ride in his new TESLA before he left us, so they did. I stayed behind and watched them disappear in a cloud of dust and small pebbles. They were duly impressed. My photo today shows my long haired one getting in for a test ride!
