A lovely day with the family

Sunday 26th July

Daughter Emma, husband Ben and granddaughters Florence (almost 4) and Milly (2) arrived just after 10 o’clock and caught us feeding the huge carp outside the White Lion pub – they come right up to the surface to take bread, and they especially like dog biscuits – the girls were fascinated.

We promised them lunch at the Grand Junction Arms – but we made them work for it – we went up the seven locks to Bulbourne Junction, and Ben worked every one!SDC10060

Supposed to be having a nap!

After lunch we went up the Wendover Arm, and very pretty it was too:

Emma and Ben worked all the locks on the way back to Marsworth, so I had quality time with my gorgeous granddaughters.

A lovely day was had by all – hopefully we will see Emma and the girls at a family party on Friday.
