Sod it, we´re staying put again

We had every intention of setting off “back to base” this afternoon, but it’s got to be one of the hottest days so far this year. The wind has dropped, all is well with the world, the birds are singing, so barring fire, flood, and locusts we aren’t moving.
 
There’s yet another BBQ planned, Steve’s going to get his fancy “burger basher” a burning. It’s quite sophisticated really – even has it’s own suitcase. Ours just has a lid, no executive stuff here.
 
Diane and me have just been for a pleasant walk in the sunshine – we nearly got up to the Leeds Liverpool canal, it’s a tad quicker than going through 4 more locks in the boat.
 
Here’s a few photos Dave took the other day when he’d given up fishing and decided to play with his tripod and telephoto lens, I don’t know, boys and their toys.
 
Aspiring to be seen, this is just a speck in the distance from where we are, I mean using your eyeballs rather than a fancy lens…

Nice view…

Only a member of the male species takes a serious photo of serious machinery for no particular reason…

The lock we’re going to have to back up through tomorrow…

One house or ten…?

That smelly tractor again…

Mooning, (oh missus)…

Oh and here’s today’s catch of the day, another bream – Dave reckons it’s bigger than yesterday’s…

So I’m going off now for yet another BBQ, more charred chicken, burgers and sausages. Just three of us sat round the stove tonight, (Diane’s got to go to work – ah).
 
Amendment,, just heard we’re catering for two more friends moored up round the corner, so we’re up to five now, anyone else? Blimey I’m going to be about two stone heavier when we get back…
