We didn’t wake very early again, well done Mia, we were all awake before you. This morning was bright and sunny, we studied the white horse in the hills, and decided it needed a clean up, as it was looking decidedly grey. We had breakfast, but Jane and Dave are taking the car onto the next stop, so we will meet them at Wooton Rivers, if not somewhere on route.IMG_5158

We all left together, fortunately not many locks on route, and we are hoping Jane and Dave will be back before we get to the first one, as it happened, they were with us quite quickly, they had a puncture and had to go to the first garage, costing them a new tyre.
IMG_5160We slowly meandered along the Kennet and Avon Canal, it is lovely to see all the green fields, and trees, until we arrived at the village. The charming predominantly thatched village of Wooton Rivers is beautiful, and the thatched 16th century pub The Royal Oak, in the Main Street, served a selection of real ales, so we decided to stay here, have some lunch and enjoy the ambience. Dave went and collected the car, whilst we enjoyed some drinks first. The food we were disappointed in, especially as the bill came to £160 for the four of us, poor Geoff he has not adjusted to the English prices. We wondered around the village, before returning to the boat.IMG_5161
Jane Dave and Mia left at 7ish, and we went to bed early we are not used to all this fresh air and exercise.
