The prodical son.

As I reversed into the winding hole at Shobnal Marina it promised to be a lovely day. We cruised down to Shobnal Fields before having breakfast.It was Wednesday 19th May, the day of my hospital appointment. It was a relaxing time in the sun until 0ne thirty, time to walk over to the hospital.All went well and by five o clock we were back at the boat. At six o clock our son Stephen arrived having rode up from Reading (115 mile)on his bike with a trailer in tow.
On Thursday Marlene and i relaxed by the boat until late afternoon when we went for a walk to the top of a near by hill where we could see all Burton upon Trent below us. Mean while Stephen went for a ninety mile ride. The morning of Friday and Stephen set off for Kings Lynn to visit a friend, mean while we left Shobnal Fields heading for Branston. In the evening Pamela and Archie joined us for the weekend. Today we had a picnic at the park at the side of Branston lake. I am writing this sat in the sun by the boat. Later we will walk the short distance to the Bridge Inn for refreshments. Life is hell on the canals.
