What we’ve missed

Today’s guest picture shows a fine boat on the Trent and Mersey Canal.  It was encountered by my brother Andrew as he was cycling along the tow path. It was a rather disappointing morning as we woke up to be greeted by yet more rain.  Instead of cycling, I did useful things like putting aContinue reading “What we’ve missed”
