A well earned bonus

When is a break not a break?

When you stick to the plan and go back to base when you said you would.

In a sense it makes a refreshing change because as you know moving from Plan A to Plan B for us is usually a step back or three.

But this is different, we’ve decided to stay put for an extra day, which proves that just occasionally Plan B is a wonderful thing.  The only exception being that when we set off on Friday the poo tank was almost full, so there’s been a difference of opinion about who’ll have to use a field if necessary.

There’s also 2 bags of rubbish hanging around (which won’t be going in a field) but do we care about these potential niggles? Nope, we’re here for another night seeing as we’re basking in glorious sunshine again!
 
As you can see we’re moored up a bit precariously, this is as close as we can get to the towpath, there’s a bad case of erosion going on here…

So it’s a big leap of faith getting on & off…!

It’s at times like this when you need a (wooden) plank, amazingly neither of us have managed to put our foot(s) in it yet. But it was a close call for Dave yesterday with a tray of burgers in his hand whilst heading for the BBQ…
 
The funky BBQ; cute and functional provided you can get to it without falling in…

Someone must’ve thought this fencepost needed cheering up, it’s just by the boat, but it wasn’t my artwork…

Early evening last night and we were treated to a free aerobatic display by this kestrel…

Climbing back out of a dive, couldn’t tell if it was a success…

And later on…

So today’s been all about sitting and chilling, and posting a few more photos…
