Monday 13th July
A quick trip down Stoke Bruerne locks and a 2 hour trip across the lonely landscape of the six mile pound between Stoke Bruerne and Cosgrove, where we moored for the rest of the day.
Tuesday 14th July
This morning, while we were watering prior to leaving Cosgrove we had some visitors, a herd of beautiful cows (maybe Jerseys)and their calves came to drink opposite our mooring.
We stopped in Wolverton to do a shop in the 24 hour Tesco superstore, and we managed to find me a new camera. It’s an early birthday present from Rog. We moved on a little way and moored just before Milton Keynes really begins, almost at Great Linford. While Rog did a bit of fishing, Cassie and I went exploring, and I took my new camera to play with. These are some of the photos that I took, and I’m very pleased with them.

Tomorrow we will cruise through Milton Keynes without stopping – we had planned to go shopping for my camera but there is no need now, and we don’t like crowds and noisy towns anymore. We plan to moor at Fenny Stratford as Rog is feeling the need for Fish and Chips or a take-away Chinese.
