Heading back

Today started with pouring rain, but  we had been hanging around the Marsworth/Aylesbury area for a week and needed a change of scenery, so we donned our new waterproofs and set off, back the way we had come a week ago, heading towards Northampton for our family party – it’s my aunt and uncle’s 50th Wedding Anniversary in August, but we are celebrating early.  We will probably go as far as Milton Keynes in the next day or two and then get a mooring in the Marina for a couple of nights, and hire a car to take us the rest of the way.  We are now moored above Slapton Lock, opposite the Whipsnade chalk lion.

  1. Hi Pip and Rog
    Hope the recent wet weather has not dampened your enthusiasm for life afloat! Sounds like you are still enjoying it - and Cassie too. We can't wait to get out again - will be end of August we think. Our co-ownewrs will be out on Water Impulse on Southern GU next 2 weeks - look out for them and say hello!
    Best wishes Elaine, Rod & Pip2 (NB Water Impulse)

  2. Hi all - we certainly will look out for your co-owners - have you told them to look out for us? Yes, we are getting a bit fed up with getting wet, but still enjoying life just the same. Take care, and don't work too hard!!! Hehehe!
