Sunday 25th May
We have stayed on R&R in the marina since we arrived there on Thursday, on Friday we had a ride to Braunston as we needed to get some bits from AJ canopies and we popped in to the Admiral Nelson pub for a pint. It had been ages since we had been in this pub and it has been redecorated and looks good we were going to sit outside next to the lock but then Kev stood in a pile of dogs...t right next to the table, it really makes me mad that people have no regard for anybody and let their dogs do their business anywhere!!
Anyway it started yet again to rain and we headed off back to the marina, and I must say we have taken the opportunity since being in the marina to try eating out at all 3 places. It was a treat for me as Kev was away for my birthday and our Silver Wedding Anniversary so we first tried the cafe/bar at the small cinema on Thursday and it was lovely, then on Friday night we had a meal in the Waterfront pub and also they had a band on they did a lot of Paul Weller so Kev was pleased.
Last night was lovely as we went to the Thai restaurant and had a fantastic meal.
Well what can I say "CRICK SHOW" as usual the weather did what it does best "RAIN" and the ground was soaking, we didn't think we would get the car off the field as cars were slipping when we were actually going in to the show. They had put old straw down in places inside the show itself but it was torrential rain at times and it was just awful most people had wellies on and my god did you need them as it was very very muddy too. We were a bit disappointed with this years show apart from the dreadful weather there didn't seem to be much there, obviously there were plenty of new boats to look at but not really many interesting stalls so we won't be in a rush to go again.
We are back home now and the weather here in Roos has been lovely and I have managed to get lots of washing out on the line now it means I have it all to iron!!!
