Bananas, milk and Cherwell Valley

The bananas look fine after this six day absence. Haven't yet tried the milk. We concluded our optician business in Poole yesterday, and came back in seven hours today (car to Great Haywood, bus to Stafford, train to Chester, bus to the marina) to find Erin Mae safe and well in Tattenhall.

We've made a habit of pausing at Cherwell Valley services on these trips. Costa coffee (Americano and a Flat White) is over-priced (IMHO) but it tastes good, and the M&S Food shop stocks a wonderful iced & spiced bun 2-pack. Today we got chatting to Carol and Martin, who sat down next to us with their coffees. It turned out Martin had done some narrowboating some years ago with a group of scouts he was leading. Nice to meet you, guys – it contributed to a pleasant break.
