Monday 14 July

Our good friends Dave & Laurie made the journey to Atherstone  to see us today and we found a  cafe that offered a themed 1940’s war time lunch menu served up on blue edged white enamel plates,washed down with either ginger beer or dandelion & burdock.  The staff were all dressed in period costume  and the walls and surfaces were decorated with all kinds of 40’s memorabilia and music of the time was playing in the background.   All that was missing was the odd air-raid siren, but perhaps that sounds at closing time!

We returned to the boat afterwards to sit in the sun and enjoy a cup of tea and home-made chocolate cake.  A lovely afternoon.
