Last week on Tuesday night, I entered a road running race for the first time in over 8 years.
The calm before the huge thunder storm that dogged our first mile but was pleasantly cooling...
Ok, I always knew I would be at the back, after virtually no mileage under my belt this year, but I was in position 288 out of 302 serious competitors with a time of 47 minutes, 55 seconds. Need to put more time into my preparation for next year and slice some minutes off that time !!
Next morning, we moored ready, below the flight, ready to come up to our reserved mooring for the festival
View down the flight from the museum
Up. The lock keepers, as is their role, helped us up the flight and we moored for yet another successful wonderfully attended festival. Thank you to everyone who came to see us!
A visit to the newly revamped Foxton museum ~ The Boilerhouse
Interactive exibits for children (and some adults...)
Model of the inclined plane
Virtual film of the inclined plain and it's operation
Moored boats....wait... they look familiar!!
Panning out ~ some nice footage of our pair when we were up here for Easter.
Our plans now are to spend another weekend at the top of the flight, then swiftly race to Braunston for chandlery bits and pieces and then down towards Cosgrove for the Annual Cosgrove Canal and Craft Festival
