Whitsun Trip Day#2

We pulled the pins at 9 am and headed for Marsworth top lock. We shared the whole flight and the following locks to Seabrook with Jarrah, a fellow member of Aylesbury canal society. We also met Peter from nb Ghecko (a fello Cutweb member) several times on the Marsworth flight as he made his way from Bulbourne down to the Marsworth sani-station and back again. Peter mentioned the BCN Society's Summer Explorer Cruise which I am going to try and take part in as I want to do all of the BCN when possible. We moored for the night at the Globe Inn having completed the rest of the locks solo and stopping in Leighton Buzzard for a quick trip to Aldi.

After an excellent steak meal in the Globe Inn, Brenda decided to follow the Greensands walk that starts from bridge 111 and took us through water meadow and oak woods to the outskirts of Leighton Buzzard and back onto the canal towpath via Riverside walk. Yet another nice quiet mooring for the night.
