Day 63: Sitting it out.
So here we are with another Bank Holiday and it is damp, wet and miserable.
On Thursday evening, Keith and I joined Carole and Adrian for a meal in the Tudor Arms. It was absolutely scrummy and we can completely recommend it. We had a main meal and a pud for £9.95 and it was fabulous.
Friday we woke to mizzling rain, which lasted all day, so we did not go to Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust as we had planned. Instead we stopped inside and I did some rock painting.
Later on Friday afternoon the rain did finally subside and so Carole and Adrian waved us goodbye and set off back to Saul Junction. It has been wonderful spending time with them.
Saturday morning dawned and hooray it was not raining, but it was overcast and the threat of rain was apparent, so no Slimbridge today either. Instead I did boat chores, nattered to the bridge keeper, whilst visiting the bins as you do. I then suggested as to not get cabin fever that we should go to the Black Shed for a coffee and a possible wander, which we did. The Black Shed is brilliant for food, drink and supplies. I think they cater a lot for the caravan park. It is a warm and friendly place though, so well worth a visit. I am not sure what the rest of the day has in store, but we will see how it goes.
Pop back soon xxx
