Next morning we were up betimes and headed back to Bury

We could not leave Bertie alone and have un-winterised him, filled his water tank, packed his cupboards, made up the big bed and headed north! To be fair all that took up most of the Friday morning  but we are promising ourselves that with lots of practice we can get that time down by several hours. The weather forecast looked good for this weekend and we fancied some more Bertie-time. We did not want a long drive so we found
