This morning was greyer and cloudier than previous days and rain is forecast in more substantial quantities than just the occasional shower. However it was dry when we set off at 9.00 and still dry when we moored up half an hour later at Spinney Bank Farm Shop. We bought an assortment of goodies, returned to the boat, had coffee and set off again.
We only had another hour’s journey as we were meeting our friends Christine and Terry for lunch at the Lime Kilns. They arrived on their boat soon after us, so we sat and chatted until it was time to go for our lunch. Good pub grub as always.
The rain arrived while we were eating lunch, so we all went back to Chyandour for coffee/tea and cake and ummed and aahed about when to set off for home. In the end we left at about 2.15, and Chris and Terry followed a little later.
The rain stopped just as we set off and we only had one short sharp shower during the afternoon. We arrived back at Wyken Basin at 5.30.
