Great Meal

On our way home from the Space Centre we stopped at The Olde Wharf Inn. Truth be told, we spent the better part of half an hour looking out for a hospitable canalside establishment. This one is a peach. The food was excellent, the staff friendly and attentive, the atmosphere was convivial and they welcome children. Highly recommended.

I got a glimpse of the canal but it was too dark to see much.

Space Centre

Yesterday we went to the Space Centre in Leicester.

It's a brilliant day out for adults and kids alike. They've got real rockets on display: Blue Streak from the days when Britain had a space programme and Thor from the USA. You can take an astronaut aptitude test in the Lunar base and there's lots of information about the planets and space travel.
