We stayed at Hungerford on Monday and did a grocery shop – this moorhen seemed to know that we were well stocked again because it spent a long time hanging around our side-hatch.
We left on Tuesday morning to make the short trip to Kintbury. The weather was much improved but there was a chilly breeze
Wire Lock – a very pretty setting
We moored at Kintbury on our outward journey and had hoped to eat at the Dundas Arms, but it was shut as it was a Sunday, so we thought we’d try again. We arrived at lunch-time and got a couple of pictures of the horse-drawn trip boat leaving.
We had a meal in the Dundas Arms – the food was good, but the landlord left a lot to be desired – he was very rude and unwelcoming, and proceeded to give Rog and Karen a lecture about everyone using credit cards to pay (they were using Debit cards!) Not your usual jovial Mein Host, certainly.
Yesterday we moved to Newbury, and had a wander around the shops, I bought a couple of pairs of crop trousers and a couple of new T-shirts, and we all bought pies and sausages from the Newbury Sausage shop.
Today we have moved to Thatcham – the weather has really turned now, and it’s a scorching hot afternoon.
Tomorrow the plan is too move on to Woolhampton and perhaps stay there for the weekend.
