Entertaining our guest: Day 7

We have managed to do something every day since MOH arrived and yesterday was no different.
No point getting up and going out early as shops don’t open until 10am on a Sunday so we had a leisurely start.
We decided to stop at a picnic area on the way as it’s a lovely shady spot to walk.

Little shelters like this could be found in various secluded places at the plantation, so it seemed a little odd to see one here out in the open!
Mind you, it would make a nice spot for a Des Res, especially with this as your garden.
Less than fifty yards beyond that, you have more woodland, and just looking at the pictures makes me feel considerably cooler than I was!

I have no idea what this flower is, but it was alive with little black bugs! Maybe they were attracted to the colour as butterflies are to buddleia bushes and this little bee was certainly busy. I got the impression he was digging himself a hole to get out of the heat.

In Louth, we managed to park in the High Street without difficulty and decided to walk up one side and down the other. Unlike most towns that are busy on a Sunday, a lot of the local traders here were closed.

Buddy was very interested in this shop and MOH had a job pulling him away.

“Open Sesame!”

On the way back Maggie joined forces and we had to explain that the shop was shut!
Yes, it was a Pet Shop!

“The Treats are this way!”

St James Church reminds Hubby of the Thunderbird rockets in its design.
 

Louth has a street market and is the last town in Lincolnshire to have a Cattle Market. It was very quiet though and we walked along some of the cobbled back streets.
We got a Subway for lunch, then went on to do some basic shopping to replenish my meat drawer in the freezer.
Dinner was chicken curry, rice and popadoms followed by gooseberry crumble with our own gooseberries!
OK, only twenty of the berries in the crumble were ours, but it’s a start (and very nice it all was too)!

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 recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.
