A date with a birthday lunch no less


We left Cosgrove and the Iron Trunk Aqueduct (above) over the River Gt. Ouse yesterday morning and headed into Wolverton a mile or so further along.   there are good moorings (below) by Wolverton Station and  easy access to a large Tesco store.

The bridge in the back ground with the silver stairs gives access to a the main road and Tesco is but a 5 minute walk away.  I toddled off with a rucksack and staggered back 40 mins later with provisions for the week.
Arriving at Linford Wharf we found Nb Matilda Rose moored up so we joined them and as it was Graham's birthday we all made haste to the Nags Head and lunch!

And here we have Graham presiding at the head of the table, daughter Karen and assorted grandchildren and Jill and Joe.

Hello folks!

I think we just said good morning to each other! You certainly picked a great day to get some miles behind you.

All the best,
Toby (NB Wilshamstead)
