The Maisibert and Jubilee await their turn in the three locks at Linslade.
We had agreat journey from Berkhamstead to Milton Keynes by seeing 4-5 Kingfishers one being chased by a hawk at boat level and turning about just behind my shoulder.
We also saw a mobile mast disguised as a tree and the lion carved into the hill side as we entered Leighton Buzzard.

This weekend we are meeting Hilary's relations from New York and my brother Ray on Sunday.
