Saturday 14 May - Sheep May Safely Graze

We had some supplies to buy and check out a few things at the very helpful tourist office.  We searched high and low for the indigenous Melton Mowbray pork pie and the native Battenberg cake and eventually ran them to earth in their natural habitat - the Marks and Spencer food hall.  We tracked down a magnificent specimen of  a blackberry and apple pie at a baker close by.  We had a disastrous lunch at the Mill in the centre of town.  Poor food, poor service and dirty washrooms.

This evening we walked again across the water meadows to the Old Mill at Harnum.  Once again the light on the cathedral was beautiful.

Today there was a flock of sheep close to the path and they grazed all the way to the cathedral
This time we found a table outside the Old Mill with a view across the water where some small kids and several dogs provided much entertainment.

The river Nadder at Harnum
Again on the walk back it was difficult not to take pictures.  The blackbirds were singing away and there were several small birds singing to each other in the reeds.  There are lots of ducks, most in the water but many wandering around in the long grass and sitting on roofs of buildings.
