.... has a silver lining.
Having moored at the bottom of the Buckby flight last night (which we'd never done before)
we found ourselves between a rock
and a hard place
Sandwiched between the M1 and the Birmingham/London (I think) railway line and with no TV or radio signal.
However, the chandler sells chocolate and beer and the cafe does a seriously good breakfast. The chandlery also had our specially ordered
counter terrorism Paniche fortification extra long pins and chains ready and waiting for us
Hopefully these will stop us being yanked out of our moorings amongst the big guys in Europe
These are the photos I didn't take yesterday of the water coming down the Buckby flight
A beautifully sunny day today and we cruised on to Weedon Bec after the afore mentioned excellent breakfast and a stop for shopping at the Heart of the Shires 'mall' (where I went mad and purchased one of those twirly honey stick thingys) and some eggs from Be-dazzled - the best in the country by my reckoning
Ooh; whilst out shopping we spotted this small pink dog sofa which we thought The Manly Ferry's (NB Caxton) dog Bombo might rather like
A snip Elaine at just £169!
