In other words Boe has arrived, mind you somewhat later than anticipated. She sat on the station at Oxford waiting for her train and continued to sit as everyone got on the train and left..........she blames the sign board which said her train was the second one in.....she then had to wait an hour and a half for the next one.
We had planned to stay in Evesham for an extra day as the forecast for Wednesday was dire.......and wrong! The horrendous rain that was forecast did not arrive until late afternoon and then only lasted a short while and was not horrendous. Still it gave us chance to have a wander around Evesham. The park and the public toilets are wonderful but the town leaves a lot to be desired. The toilets are managed by Wychavon district Council as are those at Pershore and both places they are scrupulously clean (3 times a day)
Today we decided to depart as and when we were ready which turned out to be 9am by the time Barney had had a good walk etc.
