Somebody was obviously looking after us today as we awoke to sunshine and we have had a wonderful day out in the lake district. It started by John & Colleen kindly dropping Geoff Barney & me in Kendal where we had a stroll through the town and then went looking for where the Lancaster canal used to end before being fill in in 1955.
And then we found the end of the canal!
This is what would have been the last bridge on the canal I believe and what you can see to my left is not water but a tarmacked path of what is now now called the "Canal Trail". We walked along part of this before heading back to town to find a suitable coffee stop to meet more friends. This time it was Jean & Dave who live in Elterwater who were to collect us. We found a suitable venue at Abbots Hall next to the Parish Church. We had just met up with Jean & Dave when we heard a voice saying "Good gracious it's Gill & Geoff" . Ex RAF friends Jeff & Sheena Baker were down from Scotland for a wedding in the church next to where we were sitting. We hadn't seen them for several years so had a hasty catch up before departing on our tour. What a small world. Where to?

But declined to go out of his depth!
