Old Acquaintances

Still moored at Uxbridge

Last week we made contact with John and Sheila Hill of Ruislip who we originally met in Levin New Zealand. They are inlaws of our friends Don and Sandra Webb in Levin. John very kindly came and collected us from the boat and took us home for a slap up Sunday dinner. Later we went for a walk around the Ruislip Lido which is a recreational lake in which I had fished many moons ago. The Lido, originally a town water reservoir but these day's it's just used for boating, swimming and fishing. They used to do water ski-ing but the lake is leaking and too shallow in many places.


The Lido = Ruislip


After a great afternoon catching up on all the family news John and Sheila kindly drove us back to the boat where we put on supper.

We had planned on moving on today but after a walk into town and visiting Denham Marina chandlery we thought it was too late in the day so we postponed moving until tomorrow.
