Crick (Grand Union – Leicester Line) – Monday 9th September

Having woken up to so many lovely mornings it was a bit of a shock to wake up and hear the pitter patter of rain on the roof.  However by 10am it had more or less stopped so we headed off – of course it was just having us on as it started to rain after a few minutes and it didn’t stop until we reached Crick.  I kept supplying the skipper with coffee and soup and then cheese on toast once we arrived.

 
I made a cake as we were going along – it’s a long time since I made one but it turned out OK!
 


We took a wander into Crick with Ray and Diane and hit, what I thought was, a rather expensive Co-op.  They wouldn’t accept my yellow Co-op loyalty card and the receipt has Hearth of England Co-op on it – so maybe it’s different to the ones I am used to.
 

It was a lovely afternoon and Richard took Muffin for a long walk but down came the rain again.  Two rather bedraggled beings appeared at the door – one was enveloped in a warm towel while the other went and had a shower!
 

We were quietly minding our own business when there was a toot of a horn and NB Isobel came passed – I knew we would be seeing him again soon but didn’t realise it would be that soon!
 

As it has been such a wet day today’s photos were all taken by Ray and Diane over the past few days.

    1. I am a day behind with the blog which doesn't help. We are heading to Warwick where we will turn round and head back southwards again. Quite when we don't know - it depends on the weather but we need to be back at Barby on Tuesday. Maybe we will catch you at the Blue Lias :-)
