Well, we wouldn't want to over do it would we?
Adam (NB Briar Rose) put a comment on last night's blog which recommended that we moor a little further up which would get us away from the residential moorings and associated noise from gennys and engines. A good call so we moved up a bit, it's amazing how much nicer it is round by Br 82
I love the fact that everything is so beautifully designed - even the play areas are rustic
This is the River Ouzell
and this is the biggest log pile I have ever seen
How many winters would this little lot keep us going for - it would see me through my lifetime and probably all my boaty friends' lifetimes too. I'm still drooling
This is Woolstone and it's church which has lost it's tower somewhere along the way
Yet another of those pretty villages that lie 'within' Milton Keynes now - each has been left it's own respectful space and evironment - there is no encroachment of city life
It's not all modern housing and plastic pubs
This is The Barge, offering food all day and real ale
Plus a 'warm' welcome for the dogs - including a nice woolly rug covering the flagstones
It's opposite the village pond and less than 5 minutes walk from Br 83
This is our new mooring - much nicer and no boats opposite - far more private
G adding power to his mast lights - we'll have no more smut about errections please - oh go on then, but this is the last time!
It looks more like he's sewing up his trousers in this pic!
