THURSDAY 16TH APRIL 2009
Fenny Compton here we come, the journey started with just a sprinkling of rain drops. I knew worse was to come later in the morning, so leather brimmed hat and long coat were donned in readiness and was I right, it tipped down just as forecast, but by the time we arrived in had eased off.
We popped into the canal side Wharf Inn for refreshment and to ask if it would be OK for Stu and Jen to leave their car in the pubs car park over the weekend, that would be fine, provided we were patrons, no problem!! Suitably refreshed we wandered the mile into the village of Fenny Compton, the little Co-Op store provided our immediate need for bread and milk and again the centre of this little place fulfilled all the requirements for a quintessential English village, with a pub and beautifully situated church amid a tumble of cottages.
We returned to Skyy in warm sunshine which was to be the beginning of a wonderful spell of weather.
