Very special visitors

On Wednesday whilst waiting for our guests to arrive ...

 we watched the swan anitics
 ... not quite sure why he's doing this to the other two
 ... but I'm presuming that this was the result he was after!

We met our visitors at the Spade Oak where they could leave their car overnight and had a couple of drinks with them before returning to Still Rockin'.  We ate at the pub in the evening but sorry, I didn't take any photos ... far too busy catching up with them since we'd not seen them for two years.
Sunset just before 9 at Bourne End
Yesterday started with a cooked breakfast, bacon, tomato, mushrooms and eggs. George chose to have his on a toasted, buttered tea cake!  Whilst George and I did the dishes my brother Garry and sister-in-law Sue who live in Perth, Australia sat in the bow relaxing.
After a walk around the High Street of Bourne End we headed along the Thames Path, over the railway bridge and back along the other side to The Bounty

 ... a very quirky pub and eatery

Husband's please note.

 Sue, Garry, George and me
That was a really good cuppa tea too

George thought that we were eating at The Bounty and was looking forward to Ham, Eggs and Chips and so was really disappointed when no one else was hungry so soon after breakfast.
Still Rockin' is just over George's shoulder
We walked back home and finished off the tea cakes
 ... before it was time for them to leave

We've had a fantastic 24 hours in their company and were sorry to see them go but we'll see them again in about 18 months ... in Australia!

And as a footnote ... we had ham and eggs and chips at tea time but on board not at the pub.
