What a glorious day and, at last, we were free to move on. We reversed back to the waterpoint and, after walking up with the rubbish, I left G to it and set off towards Cosgrove with the dogs.
Leaving this wood in situ brought tears to my eyes, but there was no way we could get in to that side.
It wasn't long before G caught me up although the going on the towing path was surprisingly good
After an hour Baxter had had enough so we hitched a lift and waved to (a lonely looking) Briar Rose as we went passed the marina
No stopping at The Navigation for us today as G is on a 'fast' day
and on into Cosgrove - I can never resist (yet) another photo of this glorious bridge
Baxter is being particularly clingy with G at the moment
We moored between the lock and the aqueduct - plenty of room although very busy with dog walkers
although you wouldn't think so the way Daisy was rolling around with gay abandon!
Like the rest of us she so does enjoy the sunshine
After lunch Muttley and I set off for a walk - it was way too nice to be in, but Baxter had done enough for one day. These guys didn't look too worried about the state of their field
but this little chap was in the same field and looks like one of those pitiful charity adverts
This is different
The first I've seen this year (except in buckets in florists).
