Think of a better name than Adagio Tap. Viv’s nectar or Stevee stump. What does it taste like please describe in 50 words or more. I have not worked this week due to the customers cheque not clearing in time for the builders; of the granny annex to hand over the keys. More bike riding with Steve Post a DI that I frequented nearly 3 years ago.

Cool. American Pale Ale – very pale indeed and most def. 5.8% but not from it’s taste – so light and refreshing … just hits you later. Ordered some more to make soon, including this beast:

Cold, wet, damp and very cold here, oh and very moist too.

Another trip to Daventry Country Park

Well, the wind died down a bit and the sun even peeped out for a short while, so the occupants of Adagio & their neighbours from Poppy Eyebright stepped out and encircled the reservoir – Tilly running after Toby who only had eyes for the lake!  Nice cafe at the end with tea & bacon rolls!

A short trip down south to Blagdonia, staying at the wonderful George Inn in Croscombe… . .Christmas menu, lovely!

Bit of a blow

With winds gusting to 50 mph for 3 days, it’s all been a bit trying. Got a few domestic jobs done, such as  a new knife rack:

Spotted this bird . . 

On a boat’s roof – no sign of the real thing….

Reservoir Dog

The windy weather has stopped, as has the rain – so a day out would be nice. But, where to go?  Somewhere where’s there’s no mud? And dogs allowed?

Viv did her research and found this! £2 car parking but it looked good. Unusually for a reservoir, they allow dogs and they can even go in the water.

Lots of wildlife  …

Time for J&P to “Name that bird!” . .  there’s more to go

No bird here but a Flubber Wubber …

There’s a complete circular walk as well as many side walks too …

We did see a Martin Pescador (honest) but the blue flash was all too brief and the camera wasn’t to hand . .

Arty photos (the “toy” setting)

They have lots of bird watching platforms (just no birds) apart from my favourite water fowl – the widgeon! They have a lovely call and despite my imitation they didn’t come any closer … maybe it was the big black beast that put them off

And lastly a photo called, Spot the bird! We’re sure the orange one is a plastic one! Any ideas?
