Weekend visitors

Our friends Alan and Val came visiting on Saturday. The afternoon saw us wandering the streets of Rugby and venturing into Summersaults the veggie restaurant yet again for coffees and cakes - lovely place, lovely food.
Our evening was spent at The Raven in Brinklow where four meals and two rounds of drinks cost less that £40! We also enjoyed live entertainment in the form of DIVA, a talented singer in the Alison Moyet mould. The volume was a bit too much for Joe but the rest of us got quite raucaus joining in the sing-a-long.
The dinette/bed got its second outing and was again proclaimed to be very comfortable even if the early start the next morning, as engineered by Fletcher and Floyd, was not so popular..
Just after Val and Alan left late morning we were again opening the marina gate for Abby and Dan, Joe's daughter and her partner. They had been staying at Charing Manor and realised that they were only a short distance away so took the opportunity see us.
So all visited out, she reaches for a stiff G& T...

Ah, there's nothing like the dog-inspired early start...was it the hot breath on face, paws on stomach or barking in ear version?

Is The Raven in walking disance from the cut, if so where is the best place to moor? Ta Brian

Hi Greygal
Floyd's peferred method is to rattle claws along wooden floor, shake dog tag on collar, wag tail across cabin door and use same is drum. Move two is the poke in the ribs with his beak. This is repeated at least three times before five stone lands on your stomach!

Hi Brian & Diana
The Raven is walking distance from the cut - 20mins or so if you moor near Rose Narrowboats.

Lou reckons that you can't beat the cold wet nose applied to an exposed armpit but she's willing to give these new techniques a try!

I hope you enjoy the full range of wake-up techniques Lou is about to employ then - perhaps you should limit her reading of the blogs at bit?
