I'm delighted to say my back has gone 'back in'. Not just for the obvious reasons but, moored at Bugbrooke, this is a walkers paradise and I would have been furious not to have been able to walk it. G's hand is also healing brilliantly, so both of us have narrowly avoided hassle with the NHS.
So a vast choice of walks today - over bridge 38 and then up over this tall footbridge to clear the railway
or under both the canal and the railway via the tunnels?
a glorious day although the wind was quite chilly again
the boys enjoyed a paddle and a drink - I'm still not used to seeing them all clipped out. Baxter keeps rolling on the towpath since he was finished yesterday and is now absolutely filthy
Northampton is such a beautiful county
someone's seriously into collectibles - the majority is railway nostalgia
Bugbrooke village - I needed to visit the shop and the chemist. There are also two pubs but I haven't visited either ... yet
Wisteria is in full bloom and definitely the plant of choice in this village - I particularly loved this arch
I wonder if I'm getting sentimental as I know this will be my last summer in England for the foreseeable future
