R & R.

Still moored at Devizes Wharf.
479 locks, 586 miles, 17 Tunnels, 26 swing bridges and 9 lift bridges since Nov 2006

We had plenty of heavy rain overnight which eased this morning. Mid morning it was fine enough for us to go for a walk. Dot and I walked back to see if n/b Epiphany was still moored where we had seen them yesterday and found them still on the same mooring. I think we must have woken them up as it took a few minutes form them to surface after we had called their names. We spent the best part of an hour with John and Fiona chatting and drinking coffee. It was nice to meet up with you again guys.

After we left John and Fiona we went into town and took a few photo’s and found Morrisons supermarket to buy a few bits & pieces, especially some Cornish clotted cream to have on scones that Dot was going to make.

Barrels from the Wadworth Brewery make lovely flower pots

Back at the boat the scones were duly made and devoured with great gusto. We will have to do a few locks tomorrow to work off the calories.

This evening n/b Epiphany moved up to the wharf and moored opposite and we are now watching the Diana memorial concert on TV. Tomorrow we start heading east again towards Wooton Rivers.
