We spent a lovely few days last week just past bridge 45 in rural surroundings,providing you forgot about the west coast main line that was just across the field. It was in a cutting so the sound was not too bad and it has been following us along most of the Grand Union. It was very warm so the time was spent reading and watching the many boats go by especially the old working boats on their way to Stoke Bruerne for the Weekend at War. We are now back home for a week whilst BB gets some much needed TLC by the boys at Stowe Workshops.
