The decorations are up and someone dressed up in a red coat had a huge curly white beard was seen wandering the streets. The town was known for making hats of all types from Top to trilby, now celebrating the fact with this art work.

Unfortunately the old factory still has broken glass in its windows and is unused now.
We moved down and stopped before lock 6. While there for the weekend a goat came through the hedge from the farm.

It seemed friendly but while Ann was taking a picture it came up and butted her in the leg! Luckily not pushing her into the canal!
The battery monitor is in danger of providing too much information! On average we are only using about 10% of our battery capacity between charges. The engine is putting back about 50 Amp Hours in an hour twice a day. 100 AH a day at 13Volts is 1,300 watt hours or 1.3 kilowatts of electricity. That seems to be enough for our TV, computer, fridge, lights and radio.
