Winnie goes to the Van Doctor

Hi folks,

as you may well know Winnie is sick and needs a new clutch so Trevor and I went to Winchelsea to have her looked at.

We dropped her off at the garage and went to our normal place for lunch. This is beginning to get a habit and the staff now say hello as we go through the door. I had a pint as Trevor was driving and after our lunch we went to the river.

This gave us a laugh on the window, make sure you read it.

The pub was a bit spit and sawdust but the food is wonderful.

This quaint cottage is next door to the pub.

It was a bad last night for frost and I caught this in the road. You can make out the verge pattern and the wall which protected the frost from melting

Funny things in Rye, this post was adorned with shell, some of which had fell off.

Low water.

This Heron looked very sad as he tried to get out of the wind by perching behind the cockpit of the boat.

Bit too much rope for this Dingy

Ah, that's better in the sunshine now.

Well off we trotted home awaiting for the outcome of Winnie's operation, she should be home Friday.

Thanks for looking.

nite nite, Luv Mike XXX
