Thursday 26th and Friday 27th September, 2013 to Nuneaton.
M has to go home today for a dental appointment. It may seem a long way to go for the dentist but the hygienist at her practice books up six months ahead, so cancelling it is not really an option.
R walked to Atherstone Station with M and, after waving her off on the train, went to console himself (or celebrate!) at Costa!
As we very much want to do the Ashby Canal and the end of the season draws ever closer, we decided that R would take MM down to Nuneaton to pick up M when she returns tomorrow evening. This will "buy" us an extra day and that, together with a "Cunning Plan" hatched by R, should mean we can do all the things that we want to without having to rush to get back to Aston Marina for the winter (we hope!).
M had taken her camera with her, so R was a bit stuck when he saw a solitary relic of the old telephone network. So he stopped MM and got out his phone!
