Monday and Tuesday 17/18th August 2009
Tuesday we moved on to moor and moored opposite Pitstone Wharf after calling in for a pump-out.
Monday we upped sticks and cruised through Slapton lock once again, collected water ...... glimpsing the white lion once again. This lion is on Dunstable Downs in South Bedfordshire and was built in 1933 to indicate the position of Whipsnade Wildlife Park (I remember that it was usually called Whipsnade Zoo when I was a kid). It is approximately 483' in length and is home to cavies (guinea pigs) and wallabies!
