I take it back. Rain!

No sooner had I happily posted about the sunny morning we had and the clouds came.

Carol from 2 boats over said they were cruising into Stone and did we want anything.  Well we did.... we wanted a ride into Stone and a walk back for some fresh air. So we hopped aboard, met their visitors, and off we went.  We did the loop around the marina to the exit and as we neared the lock the drizzle started.  Perhaps I shouldn't say "started" but "returned"!  All the same we enjoyed the trip into Stone.

There was a couple of things we wanted from the supermarket (it rained like billy-o while we were in there).  By the time we came out the rain had stopped so we started the walk back.  We almost made it.  About 3/4 of the way back it rained some more.

Dot from nb Ewn Ha Cul had kindly offered to smoke us some cheese yesterday so when we got back she and Gordon came over for to bring the cheese and have a chat.  It was dark soon after they left and Mick came in saying he could hear someone working the lock in the dark. I went out with the camera and there was nb Winton's Folly coming back into the marina. Seems time got away from them at The Swan!!
