We'd intended to go to Stafford to get our bikes looked at today and had thought about visiting Stafford castle. In the event it was far too hot to be faffing around in the open with the bike carrier. We woke up late after the excitement of the night's thunderstorms and the main thing after breakfast was to take Erin Mae across to the service wharf for a pump-out – some things you can't simply ignore. But then it was back to our own jetty to consider how best to spend the day over a coffee. Other life-forms were also pretty stationary.

In the end, we didn't do a lot. Once the fiercest heat had gone I took the pram hood cover off and washed away the spiders and their residue – they get absolutely everywhere. No need to say, it all dried in a jiffy.

It seems it's going to be even hotter tomorrow.
