Ship ahoy!

As it's the school holidays and the son is home mum thought it would be a great idea to go out for a picnic somewhere nice. Mum and dad seem to spend hours saying "now where shall we go today?" or "where would you like to go?" and never seem to make their minds up! For a nice change mum suggested going to Hurley Lock down on the River Thames. Mum used to go there many years ago for family days out with her mum and dad and other family members and knew how nice it was there. So we set off nice and early.....

When we first arrived I checked out the trees and had a good old sniff to make sure the area was suitable for us all. When I was satisfied I sat down and watched for a while.....

Then did a bit more watching.......

Then when I thought the area was safe I went to sleep....in the shade of course as it was far too hot! Mum loved it and sprawled herself out in the sun with a book. Honestly, she looked like a beached whale but don't tell her I said so. I hope she didn't scare the ducks!
I felt really sad for Simba at his new house and I know that he likes boats so thought he might like to see the boats too. Simba these "boat" photos are from me to you and I hope you cheer up a little bit. I did look out for him sailing past....it would have been nice to have met him!

Hi there Loui!

that looked a lovely day out you had. And smashing weather. We have rain, and more rain, but it brightens up in the afternoon usually.

I liked the last picture of you sleeping in the shade there. That is what I like to do!

love and licks, Marvin xxxxxxxx

Lovely green grass!! Not many places like that around here. You sure found a good place to beat the heat! We are baking here with a humid 34 - 35 most days!!

Ahhh,
Nothing like a place in the sun, (or shade in the middle of the summer)!
