Monday 5th October 2009

Houghton Mill near Huntingdon
Not such a nice day today, dry but overcast. You cannot expect wall to wall sunshine in England at any time, but in October, definitely not.

We have been away long enough now to have built up a collection of washing, but one of the little rules here is no washing lines, so it is decide that we will go into Huntingdon on our bikes, and visit one of Kathleen’s favourite shops (Wilkinsons), to buy a clothes drier thing that we can hang on the van.

Off we go, across Godmanchester common, to Godmanchester then Huntingdon, a wasted trip since Wilkinsons are out of stock of clothes drier things, but we buy the ingredients for the Moroccan Chicken dish I am planning for tonight, so all is not lost.

On our way back we get a brief spell of sunshine and explore Godmanchester a little, another lovely little backwater.
