23rd May 2011 Lots of wind !!!

Pumping station from the towpath

With high winds forecast, we had decided to stay put today. And sure enough we had the rain lashing down and the wind blowing, although Shell Bell held tight to her mooring.  We had to go into the village to get some supplies and there were one or two jobs to do as well.  Norwyn has started to stain and varnish inside the cupboards.  As always there is washing and cleaning to do and a vast pile of ironing today (twoTshirts).   It is lovely to have different views from the kitchen window and have ducks swimming past with their babies.

When the rain stopped we went for a walk along the towpath.  We came upon a sign advertising Claymills Victorian Pumping Station, which we could see from the towpath but could not visit because it wasn’t open today. Something to consider for the future.
