Del's Day

We still can't believe we had a day indoors yesterday with all that rain and didn't realise what was going on outside. When we looked out the golf course was flooded and the towpath was a river. Yes Derwent6 was leaning a bit on her tight ropes but we didn't realise it was that bad.
In the morning Del opened his presents and cards with a cup of tea. Here is a bit of Al's card which even had Shipmate on it, where does she find them...
We then braved the flooded towpath and walked to Rugby station. We caught the train down to London and walked round Oxford street where Del got treated to some goodies.
After that we went on to Covent Garden for a few beers.
We then had something to eat at Del's favourite restaurant Hard Rock Cafe. He had to stand and everyone sang Happy Birthday to him.
From there we went over to Camden Lock market and found a good bar to watch the football in before getting on the train at Euston back to Derwent6.
We had a bit of a delay getting back due to more rain and flooding at Northampton, but we arrived at 11.30pm and the towpath was just a wash.
Del had a lovely day, a big thank you for all his cards and lovely messages from you all.
