It's a big day for Mitchell

Monday 27th April 2015

First and foremost, a big Happy Birthday to our son Mitchell, he is 26 today and has the best present and only present that he wanted - he has finally secured the visa for America and has in fact landed there and is with his wonderful wife Sara - finally they can start their lives together in the US.

Can't get any better than that for both of them.
Where did it all go wrong - this cute little guy....

...to this one on the right (that is Speedie on the left)

The precinct around Little Venice is being cleared for the IWA Cavalcade next weekend and therefore we needed to be gone by 8 am this morning - we were off before 7:30 and headed out as far as Kensal Green where we moored up to do a shop at Sainsbury's and had some breakfast before continuing on further.

Ironically we only made it as far a Alperton where we moored up for the day - right outside another Sainsbury's - could have kept going earlier if only we had known.

A reconnoitre of the area found us a Chinese restaurant which does Dim Sum , which we visited for lunch.
The style of food was the same as we have been used to from home - the Singapore noodles were great, as was the dumplings, the beef balls, the salt and pepper squid and the chickens feet (Diane won't touch them which means all for me).
a nice little collection of dishes

mmm - chicken's feet - the best

We spent the rest of the day resting and just catching upon a couple of things - for me, it was a public holiday back home for Anzac Day, so a day that I could take it a bit easier - it won't be like that tomorrow.

We have a rough plan for the next 10 days before we head back into Little Venice and looking forward to seeing a few other places - weather dependant.

6 Miles
YTD: 309 Miles, 180 Locks, 6 Tunnels, 2 Lift Bridges, 11 Swing Bridges
