      It was a glorious day today – dry and warm too – so we ventured out in our LHD 4.0 litre XJS Convertible with the roof down on a few hour long road trip from North Manchester up to Pendle, Lancashire then a meander back – 80 mile round trip.

      We stopped off for a very tasty and well presented bacon butty and pot of tea at the Café Cargo, Foulridge, Colne

      A delightful Café with plenty of seating for customers inside and outside – and the service was excellent as there seemed to be adequate staff to keep the customers happy.

      The café is right alongside a canal that had many boats on – and there’s even a barge alongside runs canal trips on Sunday from April onwards.

      This is definitely a venue for a meet up in the next couple of months – I’ll post a date in the next few days, when I’ve firmed up a couple of other activities that are calling for our time.

      We had the roof down for the whole trip and the car was very well behaved the whole time – she’s no longer sulking after crying oil all over the drive (hole in the oil cooler). Fingers crossed she stays happy and takes us safely to Belgium and back at Easter.

      Certainly looks a beautiful place. Some good roads for Jaguar driving?
