Work Party turned to Dinner Party - Friday 7th June 2013

We decided to spend the weekend on the boat and catch up with a few of the jobs which we had not had time to do earlier in  the year. We arrived at the boat in the morning and set to on varnishing the exposed areas of the engine room, painting the pole which was too long to take home in the car during the winter months, and touching up the odd spots on the paintwork.
After a lunch I checked the emails whilst having a short rest and found that Stephen and Jayne, Nb Dolce Far Niente, had emailed to say they would be in our area and would like to meet up. As it turned out they had just moored down the cut at All Oaks Wood and so we called in to see them after our trip out to the shops.
Chatting over coffee and wine aboard DFN turned into dinner at the Bulls Head in Brinklow. The owners had just given it a makeover and had a new summer menu which we all enjoyed with the portion sizes beating both the girls. We very often have their cheap lunch time menu which we have always found to be good value so would recommend it for both lunchtime and evenings. The chatting continued over coffee on Autumn Myst  before returning Jayne and Stephen back to their boat, we just wondered where the time had gone.
So nice to catch up with you guys, enjoy the rest of your summer cruise.
