We set off down the M1 in fine weather, the lime green 1.0L Chevy Spark held it's own in the fast lane and we were at our friends home in under two hours, this would take us a few weeks in the boat. 

Glyn & Christine have a new addition to the family, a lovely chocolate labrador, their grandson Alex is over the moon with the new arrival.

We dumped the car and caught a train to Twickenham, and met up with Emma and Richard by the lineout statue, Guinness and pasty's were had in the bar before taking our seats.

Saracens fans welcome their team arriving at Twickers

The atmosphere in the stadium was electric with both sets of fans in good voice, it was a close match with Northampton Saints pipping Saracens with a last minute push over try at the end of extra time.

In the evening we ate well, lasagne and chili con carne were made by Chris, which we enjoyed while watching the big fight at Wembley.

Sunday. Sausage sandwich butties....Chris does look after us.... after saying goodbye to our hosts and puppy, we left with a goody bag of homemade damson jam, marmalade, fruit cake, fairy cakes and cookies... I said Chris looks after us...we popped in to see Aunty Doreen and Uncle 'Young' Fred who have recently moved into a new home in Shepperton. After a cup of tea and catch up we made our way back to FL, the car's outside temp gauge reaching a barmy 22 degrees on route.

Back at the marina we cleaned FL inside and out before going to Weedon Bec and the Narrow Boat for tea, we both enjoyed the pork belly off the menu.
