Monday 24th - Wednesday 26th August 2009
Tuesday 25th - Lovely weather today, so we're off around the reservoirs again - round the Marsworth to the main road again (picking plumbs on the way) over the road, round the Tring reservoir and home again, tired but content!
'Home' for a couple of days on the offside between locks 39 and 40
Swans were abundant on the reservoirs

'shakin all over'

I'm sure there was a duck here!

cheers to you too!

George in pensive mode - in a world of his own!

He is convinced that the fairies live here!

two cormorants up a tree - a long way from the sea

the back of the Wendover Arm pump house

He's in fairy land now!

crab apples galore!

Damsons or Plumbs?

these are definitely plumbs - they made a great crumble.

When we got back to the boat and a welcome cuppa - goosey gander came knocking at the cratch window ...

and asked if we had any bread to spare!

Monday 24th - moved off early this morning up through the next few locks collecting water on the way and moored opposite the Bluebell Cafe where we had a lovely breakfast - couldn't believe I could eat so much (greedy, greedy).

I took this photo at 6:12 before we set of - taken into the sun coming up ...

... and this one in the opposite direction - with the heron in flight!

When we moored and had digested that breakfast, we went for a walk around Marsworth Reservoir - the water is very low. We started off by deciding to follow the 'red' trail ... until it disappeared .. then we came to the main road ... no signposts ... so turned left and followed the road ... and ended up over half way down the Wendover Arm. As we came back to the reservoirs the signposts showed the 'green' trail! Apparently Ann and Chas on Moore2Life had similar experiences with these supposedly 'marked' ways!
