David has taken a bit more interest in photos just recently after I showed him how to use Instagram. These are his from his night time ride, otherwise known as dawn, and yes this is frost you are looking at!
|FROST in May!|
|This is the skyline towards Stratford-on-Avon, the Spire is Shakespeare's resting place.|
So today after due consideration, we went biking. David had seen there is a Roman town near here, so that's where we went to. Alcester in Warwickshire. HERE Roman in origin, the town is thought to have grown up around a Roman fort here.
First port of call the little museum attached to the library where they proudly display a bird bath. That is to say that this bird bath that Mr Ray Taylor dug up whilst planting rhubarb turned out to be a 2,000 year old Roman dish!!!
But Wow, the buildings here are amazing;

At every turn, I have never been in a village or town with so very many ancient houses.
Well after coffee, carrot and passion fruit cake, the sun came out and we peddled back to the boat to go boating.
It was a glorious afternoon, just look, we did a handful of locks alone, there is hardly anyone about.
|So calm, see the ripples from WaL...|
We finished the day here, I am not sure of the name of the lock*** but there is masses of moorings here. Washing out on the airer and chairs, kindles, sunhats and glasses of.

Supper was steak, roasted tomatoes & mushrooms. On a late boat arrival was a lovely black labrador that after asking permission, I fed
him my steak fat.
