Just as we thought the Water Buffalo had all been made into pies they came to watch us moor up by bridge 15. They are such slow, quiet, gentle creatures and one calf had already made an appearance.
This is one of our favourite quiet places with fantastic views across the landscape. There was a lovely sunrise on Saturday morning and after listening to Sounds of the Sixties over breakfast, then coffee with Graham Norton, we set off up the lock. The horses were already dressed in their jackets against the wintery chill.
