Visitors, walking and engines!

Visitors ...
 On Sunday Jaq and Les came to Still Rockin’ for the day to escape the marina ‘prison’ they’ve been in for a while now and soon after they arrived Jules, Richard and Ryan pulled alongside, a day earlier than expected, so there was lots of chat and laughter between us all.

Walking …
up the hill to the Chiltern Way on Monday afternoon

 New stiles have been built with handles and a lifting top bar

 We arrive at the top of the hill
 Toms Hill House (shame about the refuse bins!)

looking back up the hill (left) as we descend (right) to 
the lovely village of Aldbury

 Spring is definitely in the air here with Forsythia around the door and anemones in the front garden

 Beautiful buildings
 … and village green
 …. surrounded by the church and post office/store
… and after an exhilarating walk we head home to the canal towpath ...
 … daffodils nearly in flower growing in pots that appear to have no soil in them - isn’t nature wonderful!

Engines …
a change of scene for the day whilst Sam Matts replaced both alternators fixing our problem quickly and very efficiently!

 The washing machine is now on, it’ll take a few days to catch up with the laundry!

We’ve had some great weather over the past few days, lots of sunshine and occasionally quite mild at 12:30 today the weather station was recording 14 degrees on the roof!
