Yes, it’s been another gloomy, damp day, but after all it is November, and we’ve done well up to now.
We moved off from Miller’s Bridge at 08:30, so we were ready to meet our Tesco delivery at Little Moor Lane Bridge. The booked slot was 09:00 to 11:00, and it was nearly 11 by the time he arrived. Then it took a bit of time to get everything stowed with unnecessary packaging removed.

It was Mo and Ness on NB Balmaha. We knew that they were heading south along here somewhere, but thought that we’d somehow missed them. We breasted up and joined them for a chat and a brew. The chat lasted longer than anticipated and the rain became heavier, so we decided to stay where we were.

We’re going to carry on the conversations later over a pint in The Albion.
I’m getting to grips with Windows Live Writer now. It’s certainly easy to use, and being able to drag the photos in before transferring to Blogger is useful. They all get stuck in at the same size, then I use the photo manipulation options to resize and move them around. I find this works for me.
