Sorry about the late blog there is something wrong with our 3G dongly thingy. I've found that I need to uninstall the programme and reinstall it again each time I use it.
We were planning on turning right at Kingswood Junction and heading off to Warwick, but friends Anne and David reccommended a pub on the Grand Union called The Black Boy (not sure if that's PC today). This meant turning left and a detour on tick-over (we have loads of time to spare) up to the winding hole just before bridge 70 and coming back past the Black Buoy Cruising Club and mooring up on the left, right outside the pub. What I've neglected to say was, we also stopped at the Navigation for lunch, and had a ploughmans and a pint. I made the mistake of ordering a pint of Dog Dancer which turned out to be cider. I might be from Somerset but I'm not a cider drinker. Well, it wasn't bad for the first half, but after that it became more and more samey. I'll not be doing that again. The ploughmans lunches were good though, but I can't help thinking the sandwiches others were having was better value for money. So here we are outside the Black Boy and we'll be meeting Anne and David here later for a meal. Tomorrow morning we'll have to be away early and get all the way down the Hatton Flight.
