The weather was overcast with the odd spit of rain this morning but still warm. We did a few boat chores before going to the Folly Inn to meet our visitors. At midday the sun was out and feeling quite hot. We found a decent table in the pub where Sue showed how efficient she is at wasp eviction. I ordered the Steak and Ale pie which was delicious and so full of meat that I couldn't finish it. Glass of ale of the day was 6X only because the Old Hooky barrel was empty. After lunch we all walked up the towpath, which was very busy with craft going through the locks, to have a cup of tea on Festina Lente.

Today's garden.

Visitors for today were my sister Yvonne from Wisconsin her beautiful daughter Jacqui with her 
young son James. It was lovely  to catch up with Yvonne and Jacqui and a pleasure to have such a well behaved young man aboard although I understand he's not always quite this good.
