Itching I was to get to the aquatic garden centre to get my bait but a phone call to them at 3 pm said nothing had yet arrived so another hour wait before finally, at 4.15 pm the call came to say the delivery had turned up. Within 10 minutes I had walked there and back and by 4.30 pm we pulled pins and headed away from that bonfire. Only did the one lock before mooring just beyond the rather picturesque bridge 164 a total distance of 3/4 mile. In the distance I could hear parrots calling so camera at the ready in the hope I get a glimpse.
And seen on my walk,
|First for me. A Heron laying down.|
|A mum to be Wolf spider carrying the egg sac.|
|Peacock butterfly caterpillers|
