Entertaining our guest: Day 6 part 2

We set off for Boston before 8am with the intention of giving the dogs a short walk on the way.
It was going to be another hot day later, but at that time the roads were pretty quiet and it was still cool.
We were able to park in the last designated disabled space, so didn’t have to pay car parking fees. These used to be free for Blue Badge Holders, but they have since introduced full charges though in some car parks you get an extra half an hour and others an extra hour on top of what you paid for, provided your badge is visible.

We decided to get breakfast, so had bacon rolls and coffee from one of the bakers. Then we went into the square for the market.
It is less than half the size it was when we left four years ago, though our friends are still there and have told us that the Pitch rates have almost doubled and people simply can’t afford it.
I bought some bananas, and then we went into The Stump.
Inside is a Lego model of the church which is beautiful and very detailed.

The dogs were well behaved, and MOH was content to wander around and look at the architecture and history of the building whilst we lit our candles, one each for the Dads, my Mum, and Jack, who’s funeral was on Thursday and we’d lit a candle at home at the time of the service.

The church is lovely inside, and I would so love to play here as the acoustics would be amazing.

We walked up to the bridge where I took some photos of the old locks on the River and  outside views of the Stump.

 

These are the church from the market square and the old town.

MOH asked me to take this photo which we’ve printed off for him as he thinks he might do a painting from it.
From there, we walked to the memorial gardens

and then into the park for ice cream by the aviary.
The poor birds looked a bit bedraggled today, but that could be down to the heat or perhaps they’re moulting as the geese are here.

We didn’t go further afield, and were back home by 1.30pm.
Spaghetti bolognese was on the menu with lemon meringue to follow.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
