Having taken Max for his morning constitutional round Christleton we left him on board while we walked the two miles into Chester to shop for Summer’s birthday present. It was a glorious morning when we set off but my lunchtime it was starting to drizzle so having had a successful shop, and a coffee and a cake in Costa, we caught the bus to Laura’s.
Summer was having her afternoon nap when we arrived but when she woke we got the best welcome ever; a beaming smile and an unsolicited hug, followed later by a couple of wet kisses!
Laura made us a lovely tea and then she leant us her car to drive back to the boat. Max had been really good while we’d been away and when we got back he enjoyed a great game of towpath tag – this is a game we’ve developed where we stand about fifty yards apart and we whistle in turn and Max runs between the two of us, with his ears flying, as fast as he can!
