The art of the leaving time, spending my Beanos, to the second at the Regal, so good to be back at the Pelican, wet and windy and fast Premier Inn WiFi

The Art of Timing

The M4 between the second Servern Crossing and the M5 between the M4 and Gloucester are both unlit, so I’m aimed to leave just as it was getting light. It worked out really well, so I parked up, had a Bacon Roll and Coffee in Costa and still arrived at The Regal (Wetherspoons) Gloucester for 08:00. The pub and the bar opening time.

The Regal quickly filled up both with professional drinkers and Rugby fans. Despite the high positive test result numbers it looks like the Rhonda is only having a marginal effect. Oh and The Regal has a King Kong model as well.

Still raining but the Pelican opened at the dot at 12:00. Awesome Pub, Awesome Ales and an Awesome welcome. New WiFi password as well. Rained a lot as well.

Planning My Tech

The day after the Apple iPhone Announcement 2021. A time to cogitate and plan, maybe the odd Fine Ale as well. A pleasant classic Autumn morning to start the day. A new Transport for Wales Rail timetable meaning my train left five minutes earlier.

My Costa points are now Beans which means they cannot be exchanged for Bacon Rolls, however Beans mean you can have whatever size Coffee you want and the large is very large. The Gatekeeper is full of Welsh Ales which is somewhat of a mixed bag. However, the supply of Hazy Jane is plentiful, luckliy.

Bubs was quiet to start and cool in the midday Sun. The wall menu had a shed load of sours, so it was start at the top and work my way down. That with Stevie Ray Vaughan and fast WiFi set the scene for the afternoon. There was was of course some TikiBar and the DrinkBot made an appearance. Good Autumnal Times.

Trust the Internet not doors. The Gloucester Brewery Video. Hazy Jane in Hereford. Lemon hand wipes. Beer House Ronaldo joy. German branded glass aplenty. Even Earthenware. Good things never last.

Later In The Day

Does Costa Coffee know what time that they actually open? First the Internet was wrong and know the doors are wrong and the Internet is right. Anyway, Spoons do rather good hanging baskets. A pint of Pepsi Max and a lump of Lime to start.

The onion rings now come with a lemon hand wash towel. And there were two trainee guide dogs that came in for a rest.

The Beer House is overwhelmed with excitement about Ronaldo going to United. Fine Ales and Football match up with each other so well. For me it’s a Märzen in the correct branded glass. And Ronaldo has now signed while I am drinking a landbier. Fine Glassware and even the exact Earthenware. Things don’t get better than this.

Driving in the light, Costa fast upload, Spoons slightly before 08:00, multiple train tickets, late Welsh trains, busy railway breweries and The Beer in Hand.
