We were up very early this morning and arrived in Manchester at 07.30!! Following Elaine's appointment we realised that we had miscalculated our departure to Europe as we won't be able to leave until May now ... not quite what we had planned but there you go!
We arrived back at the marina at the time we are normally getting up! We met up with Ray and Diane (NB Ferndale) and had a nice breakfast in the marina cafe.
We have decided that we will have to do some trips in the motorhome, plus volunteer to help some of our boater friends navigate some of the larger lock flights ... it is sending us a bit crazy hanging around the marina! Thank God for the nice people we have met this year and the Exchange pub!
This afternoon we decided to take the dogs to one of their favourite places ... Downs Banks. It is only about a ten minute drive from the marina and is a lovely place to walk. What is amazing is that it is a national park that welcomes dogs, horses and push-bikes, all of which are an absolute no-no in Sydney.
We had a lovely stroll ...
... crossed the raging river ...
... Bombo was in a hurry as he doesn't like getting wet!
