20220606 mb08 Day 01 Wrap

Two Beanos and it’s wall to wall rain. Having to wait to get into Gloucester Quays as the Tall Ships are leaving. Another free large Cappuccino on the app. Buying Salad Leaves seeds. The Platty Joobs bunting is coming down. My alcohol stats dates are mixed up. A vote of no confidence tonight. The Apple Online Store goes down just after 12:00, which means there will be Hardware. My Keyboard arrives, it works. Brewhouse & Kitchen.  My MacBook Pro falls off the Premier Inn WiFi and won’t reconnect. I watched WWDC on a Dell XPS13 with Windows 10. And the morning after the WiFi is working again.

And The Bridge Was Up

Leaving the Hereford Travelodge at 05:25 on a grey and showery Monday morning.  Wake took me along the M50 instead of the all cross country route suggested by Google Maps. I like Waze. Coming into the Quays, the bridge was up and the red lights were flashing. The Tall Ships were leaving Gloucester and looked very impressive. Another free large Cappuccino on the Costa app and Salad Leaves seeds amongst other things from Sainsbury’s. Turning The Lord High Constable of England into a recording studio, also taking advantage of the FTTC WiFi. An announcement of a vote of no confidence was made for today.  Platty Joobs over and Politics are back. Bunting coming down too.  Tank, Amazon Lockers at the Premier Inn and Brewhouse & Kitchen.

Up at 03:00 which seems to be a thing with my Beanos. Left Hereford at 05:25 and it rained all the way to Gloucester. Waze took me via the M50 where as Google Maps would have been all cross country. Got to The Quays and the Bridge was up. All the Tall Ships were on their way out of Gloucester. They looked very good despite the rain. Validated the car at the Premier Inn, although I suspect not a lot of their guests arrived at 06:30. Another free Cappuccino at Costa, courtesy of the app. Food from the local Sainsbury for tonight. The day way be The Lord High Constable of England, Tank and The BrewHouse and Kitchen. The Premier Inn for WWDC 2022 and maybe my keyboard will have arrived by then
