There was a knock on the boat this morning and our previous neighbour, Mike was there! He went and fetched Myra from the car and we spent a happy couple of hours in the sunshine exchanging news of friends and family.
Our delayed visit from David and Monica happened today, the weather was great and we sat beside the boat all afternoon and evening chatting and reminiscing.
I cooked a Lamb Keema (minced lamb curry) which they all said they enjoyed. Joy got attacked by bugs and was itching all night.

Today I went for my second Covid jab which I organised to have at Boots in Gloucester, it was all done very efficiently and I suffered no serious side effects.
In fact I felt well enough to accept an invitation to a barbecue at John & Lis’ house and we came away exceedingly full! I also got to inspect the restoration of John’s Morris Oxford (the one that looks like an overgrown Morris Minor) and hear the tale of how he ran away from home to come and work at R.A. Lister in Dursley.

Today we had a visit from our good friend Esther who brought her gorgeous little boy Yarrow along, we have known Esther since she was not much more than a toddler herself. We had a lovely day with them and cruised up to Saul Junction where we had booked in overnight to test our washing machine which is still causing problems throwing up an error code even on mains electricity.

We moved out of the marina this morning and got a mooring with car parking nearby. As usual it was Joy’s art day and my accordion practice hour.
