Well Ann and Ruth arrived safe and sound. Bringing Devon cream tea complete with homemade strawberry jam. Also home grown runner beans. Visitors like that are always welcome! We spent a lovely couple of days not going very far! Saturday found us meandering around Warwick. Then Sunday we made our way back towards Royal Leamington Spa. Just 2 locks and a couple of miles. Monday we had more visitors, but just for the day. Sheree with Leanne, Thomas and Isobel. It was lovely to see them all. The children were good as gold. Loved feeding the ducks, though unfortunately the baby ducklings didn’t arrive until after they had gone.
Yesterday was a busy day for us. Started out by dropping Ruth and Ann back with the car. We did cheer as they left but I am sure they knew we were joking. The rest of our day was then taken up with the 21 locks of the Hatton Flight. Quite a day. No boat to pair with, although we did do a swop for a couple of locks with me at the tiller. Near the top there was a lock keeper and I was really glad of his help with the last couple.
Today is wet, so Paul has lit the fire and we are having a lazy day being lovely and snug.
