We were on a narrowboat holiday. Having moored up on the Avon, we faced a long trek to The Bell for a late evening drink. Unfortunately, what we hadn't prepared for was a walk of more than two miles in total darkness, It was a moonless night and the village and surrounding areas were completely devoid of street lighting. Undeterred we struggled on and eventually arrived at the Bell for a well earned pint. However, it soon became apparent that one of our number wasn't with us. This was quite distressing, as he was quite an elderly gentleman. Mine host and his good wife immediately came to our aid. Jane made us all hot drinks and, without hesitation, Andre set off in his trusty campervan in search of our missing crewman. Happily he was found safe and well, he having taken a wrong turn in the darkness and become disorientated. Without Andre's swift action and Jane's calming influence during our 'predicament', there could have been a considerably different outcome.
God bless both of them.
