Radford bridge (98) was the destination for a Sunday roast. We had as normal moored out in the countryside but the 2 mile walk was well worth it. Sunday £6.99($10.50) with 4 choices of meat and as many visits to the vegetable pots as you want. Mon-Sat the price drops to £3.89 ($5) with the same quality but one less choice of meats. The roast is served 11am thru to 9.30pm
The bottomless Cornish ice cream bowl at £1.99($3) was just not to be missed and after all the walk back would help burn some calories.
Now for just this post....animal corner. This little fella did his aerial act across the trees then came down for a little refreshment.
Robins are such posers always ready for the camera. The Robin in the States is about 3 times the size of the UK bird.
This 14 year old lady is for sure not posing. She is on our back deck soaking wet, panting and shaking real bad. I spotted her for the first time on a passing boat as we had lunch. The second sighting was for her, very lucky. She was just a nose and pair of eyes when I spotted her on the offside as we slowly rounded a bend and I think she was almost finished. I reversed and just managed to get the boat into a position that enabled me to grab her by the neck and haul her aboard.
Jaq dried her off while I first tried the boat that had passed us earlier but no one was aboard. I just went down the line of boats knocking and found the owner on a boat further down the towpath. The dog had little function in her rear legs and an abscess on the eye that had burst, both conditions the owner said were pre her water adventure. Jaq and I went on our way happy we had rescued the dog hoping she (the owner) would keep the dog safe.
