Once through the Evesham Lock there was no difficulty mooring as there was a long stretch on the left hand side complete with mooring rings and not a single boat there.
It was on the opposite bank to a rather nice park but this was an advantage as most of the gongoozlers were over there! There was sufficient grass this side and we found we were withing long hose distance of a water tap......hence the picture below.......taken on Saturday morning
Boe departed late morning on the bus back to Stratford to pick up her train. I was forced to go with her to try and buy a needed screw for the waste pipe in the kitchen sink. In my cleaning zeal I decided to clean out the outflow. However the screw that was necessary to keep it in place mysteriously disappeared and I could only conclude that it had gone down the plughole!!
I had to steel myself up to tell Geoffrey what I had done..........
Just in case anyone runs away with the idea that Geoff does all the work, I was busy down below doing other household duties. Apart from cleaning we were expecting friends for supper so I was busy preparing.
Gill, Geoff (same names...different couple!)and Ronnie arrived after lunch and unbelievably the weather was still being so kind. We were able to sit on shore with our Pimms and nibbles before supper. Geoff (visiting) had kindly brought his box of screws with him as the hardware shop was useless for our needs. Luckily we found one of the right size.
We are still trying to obtain a good picture of Barnaby to submit for the Labrador Rescue 2010 Calendar...this is the latest attempt.
