No, absolute tropical!
That’s what the weather forecast tells me. So I find myself a nice, kind of quiet spot at Worseley Bridge, on the Trent&Mersey.
I’m in the shade from 9 o’clock in the morning till 6 o’clock at night.
If I open the back doors, the wind just blows into the boat, creating a nice breeze. And the side doors are at the canal side, so I can sleep with the bedroom side door open.
Plus the garage nearby provides me with the Saturday newspaper.
I don’t really want to go to Rugeley, and find out that there is no space to moor. So I take the bus, and my rucksack on wheels. I definitely save about the same as when I went into Stafford, so I can afford to buy wine…
Unfortunately Morrisons doesn’t have any, and Tesco only has three.
The first night I see something coming from the direction of Rugeley. It turns out to be a multitude of geese. I wonder where they come from and are going to.
The next night they are back again. Now in single file. Because they make a lot of noise, I know they didn’t head the other way during the day.
The next night nothing happens. But yesterday they were back. And yes, I know for sure they are the same ones every day. Because there is one non-Canada goose, and there are two very young ones,
I just wonder if they are going down the river Trent in the morning, and come back by the Trent&Mersey in the afternoon…
The reason I want to have a spot in the shade is the weather forecast for the weekend. On Friday the 15th this is the situation.
But when I check this morning I just can’t stop laughing. This is ridiculous!
I was going to take the bus to Rugeley again on Monday, to get some more food. But I don’t think I will…
Just before I switch off my computer, I check the weather again.
It’s three hours since I last checked. And this is the result:
Won’t use my computer again, the next days…
