It's good to spend the day with friends

It was another quiet day for us on Wednesday (24th) October, very cold outside.  

We walked into Marlow again and was offered in the street a sample green mint tea from a young lady with a tray of them.  George declined but I accepted a cup and it was really nice, it had a peach flavour to it.  The young lady then told us the tea was a gift from Bill's and gave me a little card offering a bottle of wine (up to the value of £20) when ordering two main meals from the menu.  
We decided to go for a look see ... it'll save me cooking tonight!  Once we'd seen the menu, that it was reasonably priced and a good range of food to choose from we booked a table for the evening.  

We had a really good time and will definitely go again while in our winter mooring.
 The weather looked good for our cruising today.  Although it was bitterly cold ...
 at least the sun was shining and it's only 8 o'clock.

Our visitors arrived at about 9 and we started the day (well our day anyway ... the visitors had been on the road for a couple of hours) with bacon rolls and a cup of tea ...
Here they are!  It's Lisa and David from narrowboat What a Lark, they've come to see what cruising on a wide beam river boat is all about.

We had a wonderful day, lots of chat and even more laughter but I didn't take many pictures, I left that to Lisa and you can see her blog of that day HERE

We cruised to Medmenham meadow for lunch onboard and then back to Marlow 24-hour visitor moorings above the lock by about 4:30 pm.  After a cuppa and a quick wash and brush-up we walked into town to Cote Brasserie Restaurant and had a fine meal together.

Lisa and David were up and away early Friday morning to travel to What a Lark ... there was some washing and polishing to do!

Thank you both for coming to spend the day with us we had such fun and must do it again in the not too distant future.

Hi Both,
We too enjoyed our day very much, thank you for having us. I certainly enjoyed having the river almost all to ourselves!
Roll on spring and us getting WaL out cruising again.
Stay warm,

Lisa xx
