Last night after a long walk into town I returned to the Gurnett and had a drink at the Old Kings Head. The locals are very friendly. I found out a few things about the canal and the surrounding area. Little gems like this which was attached to a cottage that I can see from my window.
I also had the good fortune to meet a young man name by the name of Roger Dibnah who is so like his father. The old adage “the apple doesn't fall far from the tree,” definitely applies here. I was invited to go along and see some steam engines this morning but unfortunately was unable to find the location, probably due to the late hour that directions were given and of course the quantity of Guinness imbibed.
I am having a day off today!
