|It's been very busy along the towpath being the long weekend, so out walking you have to contend with groups of other walkers, some with prams, some with dogs, joggers and bike riders.
We had a pleasant afternoon with a couple we met yesterday - they are reasonably new boat owners, having been on the water for less than 12 months, and they walked past our boat yesterday in awe at our wheelhouse. They want to build another boat with a wheel house like ours plus a few other things they've seen since they took over their boat.
Then we went out for dinner for Tony's birthday. The closest pub is not very far away and is on the site of another paper mill, hence it's name The Paper Mill!!
We sat out on the upstairs verandah which was very pleasant after another lovely warm day.
But they've had such a busy holiday weekend that they had run out of fish and normal chips so it was fries with everything. And they had run out of Merlot, so Tony had to have Shiraz.
Hope you have all had a very happy and safe weekend.
