Reluctantly we moved on down from Cassiobury Park on Monday passing some unusual boats on the way called ‘Elizabeth’ and ‘Crink Cronk’.
We very much liked the idea of the designer chicken house in one of the canal side gardens. There was a rain cover over part of the run and little round bowls on stalks for them to eat and drink from, very posh indeed!
When we opened the bottom gates of Batchworth Lock a BW workboat was moored on the services with nb Victoria lashed alongside it. Guess what, we needed to use the services here too. So after waiting a good half hour in the lock for Victoria to finish, she reversed off back to her mooring and we pulled alongside. Afterwards we went to moor further on just past the bridge. A while later BW had managed to secure their tree crunching machine on the front and came past us.
These are two of the lovely hand painted adverts that are placed along the fence. We had a walk into “Ricky” town centre to explore. We popped into Wetherspoon’s Pensylvanian for a snack and I thought I would try the Chilli Noodles. Well my mouth was soon on fire and my lips also began to burn as it was so hot. Luckily I ate Bottles excess salad after it, which cooled things off a bit.
