The morning began with some wonderful sunshine. Keith and I said our goodbyes to Brian and Ghost and to Lorraine and Fred who we met yesterday. Unfortunately June and Gordon had gone off to the Marina to get water etc, so we did not see them to ssay cheerio.
This mornings trip was definitely more like summer to start with, then the clouds returned. We came up through Diglis lock with a hire boat which had been moored on the pontoon with us.
By the time we arrived at Worcester it was getting quite warm. The Cathedral standing proud welcoming us back.
We moored up at the southern end of Worcester Racecourse this time, near the rowing club. We were closer to the city.
After lunch we walked up into the city for another look around and then walked down along the river. I managed to get a different view of the Cathedral from the river bank. Whilst walking along the river, we heard lots of cheering from the other side of the river so we had to investigate, by crossing over the river at the bridge to discover the Worcestershire County Cricket ground, where they were playing Somerset, and are 367-3 at 8:30pm. We walked back to the boat on the other side of the river, I took this photo of Hadar as we crossed the new footbridge.
As we were walking back from the cricket ground we decided that we had to draw up a list of things we just have to do before we kick the bucket. On the list so far we have a cricket match, rugby match, football match, grey hound racing, speedway and horse racing so far, I also want to visit New Zealand and Canada, which is a real challenge seen as I have never been out of this beautiful country. The furthest I have ever been is the Isle of Wight and the isle of Arran.
For Keith and I this was our first time at a race meeting, so it was pretty exciting. Of course when I say at the race meeting, we were in fact sitting out side of the course on the pavement.
Neither Keith or I felt the need to pay out the £15 each to get in. We still enjoyed our first taste of horse racing though.
Back on board and I am just about ready for my bed now.
