19th June 2017

Good afternoon everyone,

This my second time of writing update as the first one disappeared into thin air!

Well it's been very hot of the last two days, 32° in the shade yesterday and today and I believe it's going to to get hotter by the end of the week. Missy stretched out in front of the trailer trying to keep cool.
I need to say a big thank you to Tesco Quedgeley for looking after myself and Missy, they even put a fan in the trailer to help Missy stay a bit cooler, they also treated me to two new SD cards, that should keep me going for the next six months so.

I've moved on to Gloucester Tesco staff have lent me a fan for Missy again, not sure how long I'll be here and I'm in a bit of a quandary as to whether to go to Tewkesbury or Cheltenham next.
I'm struggling a bit with the accessibility around Gloucester, the city centre and the quays are fine, move away from their and I encounter bollards and lampposts in the middle of the path that you can't get past, A frames in gaps in walls that cyclists can get through but I can't, it gets very frustrating at times!

Gloucester is also very under recorded for memorials, I started with 19 on the system, two have been lost, and I have found 58 so far and I've only scratched the surface Gloucester so far.
