A Birthday Outing

Despite a rotten weather forecast, as it was my birthday, Alistair and I decided to head out to one of our favourite pubs for lunch – The Fish & Eels at Dobb’s Weir. The food was very tasty, here are a couple of images I made during lunch:

The rain had abated slightly by the time we had finished eating, so we took a very quick walk along the towpath to find a nearby geocache. I was attracted to these two curly ropes on the roof of one of the canal barges on the way there:

The dry spell didn’t last long, so we fled back to the car and home rather than drowning!

Notes: After making my Face Down Tuesday shot this afternoon, I managed a brief walk around the boatyard at Heybridge Basin before the drizzle drove me back to the car. This pulley was attached to one of the old Thames Barges which is currently in dock for maintenance at the Basin.
