What's going on? Shook myself from the arms of Morpheus and crawled forth from beneath the duvet this morning, peered between the curtains and Lo!
Things improved when Jill produced a wonderful kippered herring for my breakfast and while I was indulging two boats came past. An open track heading south.
We were soon through Stoke Hammond lock and at the Soulbury Three we were whisked through by some absolutely brilliant volunteers. I was so busy keeping the boat steady against water flows and the wind that the camera got neglected. Above the locks there was virtually no ice so we made good time towards Leyton Buzzard/Linslade.
At Leighton Buzzard the visitor moorings were virtually full with boats, many of which appeared to be, to use a naval expression, grounded on their own beef bones. We kept going and have moored below Grove lock. We may be here for a day or two, old friends have their boat in the marina here, I feel a possible excess coming on.
