Saturday was my birthday and I had been promised a day out in Bath, fate however determined that that was not to be as the queue of traffic going into the city started before the slip road leaving the A46. We therefore made a decision to go to Chippenham instead and the Birthday Boy is now the proud owner of a Logitech Laser Mouse which is far more responsive than my HP bluetooth mouse, which seemed-a-good-idea-at-the-time.
Back to canal stuff, we had arranged to meet family at the George, Bathampton in the afternoon and the traffic had abated somewhat by then (but not much!) so we managed to get there and take a stroll down the towpath in beautiful sunshine with my son, daughter in law and the grandchildren.
The plan was to have an early meal together at the George but once again we were thwarted by an hour wait for food even at 4pm!
They were advertising for staff…. Good, we may get a meal there one day!
We ended up with a good meal at the Compass, Tormarton which was as quiet as the George was busy!
