Tesco and Kingfishers.
Today was delivery day and this time not coal. We took delivery of food from Tesco. I put in a food order a few days ago and said where we wanted to collect it. You have to book a drop slot, so I went for 11am to 1pm as I always do. The Tesco van driver has got to know us very well and therefore he always knows where to find us, so thank you Donny for another prompt delivery, he arrived at 11.30am. It makes our life so much easier having our shopping delivered and saves lugging heavy bags about.
I delivered coal to a customer who will be wintering on the Leicester Line, so we will see more of them over the coming months and then as I put the shopping away, Keith moved the boat to the winding point, where we turned her around, so that we could head back to Foxton.
On our way back to Foxton Junction, I spotted this Kingfisher on my side of the boat. it was staring at the water, more than likely it had its eyes fixed on dinner, so I just had to photograph it. I am having a Kingfisher love affair. They are such sublime little birds and we see at least two and up to a dozen a day. This makes us such lucky people.
We will be staying put until Thursday and then we will head up the locks.
May you have a wonderful day.
