After lunch we went for a walk along the canal. We didn't see any other walkers which was a good opportunity to let Chico off the lead. He was very well behaved and even stopped chasing a squirrel when told to. If only he were that well behaved around other dogs it would make life a lot easier, but that's what you get when you take on a rescue dog! We haven't done much walking over the winter as Roger damaged his knee just before Christmas so today was just a short one at just over 4 miles. The knee didn't bother him too much so hopefully we'll build the distances up again soon.

When we got back it was still warm and sunny and we took advantage of the picnic tables beside the mooring to have our first alfresco beer of the year.
