Having a spot of lunch and watching Bargain Hunt, something black suddenly caught my eye. Gave me quite a turn, I can tell you, and my initial thought was Jade had returned. It was in fact a black cat who had boldly walked right in, without a by your leave, as if it owned the place. Before I had a chance to grab the camera Ian shouted at it and it scurried out. Got a photo of it on the towpath though, and I can only assume it belongs to one of the boats. Quite like the idea of having a cat on board but Ian is adamant we wont ever have one as he is more of a dog person. No chance for me then.
Found another walk to try out and set off ever hopeful that some elusive animal might present itself for me to photograph. I was in luck today as a fox appeared out of the gloom between some trees. Took one look at me and shot off so no photographic evidence to show for it. I did follow it along a path hoping to see it again but I started to wish I hadn't when the trees got closer and closer together. The path must have been a well used animal track and trying to squeeze my bulk through the trees took some doing. I persevered and did eventually come to a clearing. No sign of the fox so my attempt was all for nothing.

Had another blogger come past early afternoon. Reading the Inca blog I knew they were close so lovely to be able to give Gary a greeting. We are traveling in opposite directions but I'm sure one day we will meet for a natter.
Did do some fishing with what bait I had left and caught several Bream and some Roach. Kept me out of Ian's hair as he was still trying to solve our wireless network problems.
