February cruise day 4, including a walk along a disused railway

21st February 2014

After resuscitating the fire, having kept it in all night, we had breakfast and then cruised to New Bradwell. We tied up just before the New Inn. After coffee we walked east from there along the former railway line connecting Wolverton and Newport Pagnell. We didn't quite reach Newport Pagnell as our stomachs were telling us that it was lunch time. The walk was very enjoyable, passing over the canal and including a couple of former stations. One overbridge had some rather good murals of railway and canal scenes.

Back at the boat Ally joined us for a salad lunch, then she took us back to her house. There we did more helping with the seemingly endless task of painting and cleaning.

We were unfortunately too late for food at the North Western in Wolverton, so we got some ready meals from Tesco and microwaved them at the house. I was very hungry! (Perhaps I'm getting better, although my cough won't go away).

Then Ally and Ben drove us back to Jubilee where I relit the fire and we had some of Jan's apple cake.

That's about it for today; tomorrow we'll cruise back to Thrupp Wharf Marina where I have plenty of boat jobs still to do.
