Raymond and Nutfield on their way to Cosgrove in the top lock at Stoke Bruerne
The weather had been awful with hail on Friday night and then showers on the Saturday morning, but the crowds supported the festival all the same. Saturday evening the organisers had collected pre-ordered food which was still hot and delicious!
A good time was had by all and many thanks to those who came to see us in our Gift Shop on Echoes.
There's always a lazy one!
And another! Stitches are now out, but more antibiotics for another week! (See Lister story)
A case of hit me if you dare! I have fenders and am not afraid to use them!
We travelled in the beautiful weather down through the locks at Stoke Bruerne and on to Cosgrove, splitting the journey into 2 small chunks with some painting time in between. Unfortunately, the brakes have given out on the car, so we had to leave it behind, somewhat abandoned, to be scrutinised later on our way back in a few weeks!
Love it or hate it!
Beautiful bridge on the edge of Cosgrove village Cosgrove Bridge 65
Passing over the old Iron Trunk Aqueduct over the River Ouse
We said our goodbyes (nearly everyone would meet us again in a week for the Linslade Festival, further along the canal) and set off this morning in order to complete the journey through Milton Keynes and moor in Fenny Stratford for the evening.
View from the aqueduct
Flats having some work done in Wolverton
The Wolverton Train Mural, recently refurbished, looks amazing on this long bend
Aqueduct carrying the canal over Grafton Street, New Bradwell
Pretty canalside pubs
We can still see you!
Milton Keynes Marina entrance
Love this miniature greenhouse on the roof of the boat! Great idea
Gliding through Fenny Stratford and it is busy!
At around 1pm, we arrived at Fenny Stratford and managed to squeeze into a gap before the lock. Too be honest, I think we must be so tired after the weekend, we have done nothing all afternoon. No painting for me and no 'spannering' or 'brassoing' for him. And so it should be!
Hopefully see many of you at the Linslade Canal Festival on Saturday! Please come and say hello!
