Sunday 12 June - Rack of Pork

The weather was showery today and I had some work to do on the railway crossing project.  We went to lunch at the Henry Tudor House just off Wyle Cop.
The room has been nicely renovated and there is a large well lit area to the left
The pork roast was a large, thick, pork chop with a large piece of crackling.  It nearly hid the roast potatoes
The vegetables came separately.  We had no room for dessert and shouldn't have had a starter
It was raining intermittently and we decided to walk home along the river and through the Quarry gardens.  When we arrived there was just one solitary male duck to be seen.

A mother duck came down the path with her family.

The young reluctantly followed her into the water - it required a jump of about 18 inches.
A couple were feeding the ducks.  It turns out she made her nest in their garden which is close to the Quarry gardens.  They were there for several days but they couldn't get out of a walled part of their garden.  They bundled them into a box and then guided the mother and young into the Quarry gardens.  The young are now about three weeks old.  There is another family in the Quarry. The two mothers don't get on too well together and generally try and keep their families apart.
