Jun 15, 2019 - Festival of History

This weekend is a festival of history weekend in Milton Keynes. They have taken over the park with their tents of all sizes and are showing off their skills of toolmaking, woodworking, cooking medieval meals and fighting with swords, spears and arrows. A light shower of rain didn't put them off and they all had wood fires burning around their tents. It was just by luck that we found out it was on - they had very little in the way of advertising for it. When we walked around Willen Lake the other day I spotted a poster and got the web...

Jun 12, 2019 - Just another few miles

We spent a couple of hours yesterday walking (8km) in the drizzle around Linford. Today we took advantage of the small window of dry sky and travelled back down to Campbell Park. We are moored just up from the "You are here" sign on the map. We decided to go for a walk around Willen Lake before the rain started, so we did another 5 km and got back just as the rain began. Well timed! there are hundreds of Horsechestnut trees in this area and all are covered in thousands of conkers. Looks like we may be here for another couple of days...

Jun 9, 2019 - Off we go again

Blue skies and sunshine this morning, so we set off with the wheel house dismantled. The lovely art work on this boat called Gulliver, one of the best we've seen. WE arrived at Gifford Park to fill with water and found it to be quite busy, so had to wait a while for one to finish and then there was another boat waiting to fill after us. Once that was done we moved on a bit further and tied up then had lunch and went for a walk. There's a lake not far away so we circumnavigated that, not a very big lake so it only took an hour. Now a sit...

May 27, 2019 - Visitors on board.

Our friends, Elva & Ray, arrived on Saturday and we've been busy exploring the area with them. We're all very impressed with Milton Keynes, so many large green areas with small clusters of houses around the green. A great place to bring up kids. Lots of nice artwork situated around the walking paths and tow paths. The historic village of Great Linford has lots of thatched roofs and old buildings, another one mentioned in the Doomesday Book in 1086.

May 25, 2019 - It stays light till it gets dark here!!!!!!

A couple of pics from Leieghton Buzzard. We seem to have been flat out since leaving there. They like setting challenges for wide beams on this canal!! The charter company had boats 3 abreast outside their marina and it made it a bit tricky to get through. Of course they are getting ready for this long weekend and the summer season and school holidays have begun. Tony spotted this deer running across the field - can you see it?? This is quite a spread out town with a very big green area which is quite lovely. There is an art...

Jul 4, 2013 - June holidays down south

June holidays down south We had a lovely time in cromer last weekend, the sun came out every time we needed it to :-) at other times we just admired the sea view from our window, which sat on the cliff edge. we even managed to swim 3 time in our outside pool ( it was very warm water) and the kids loved playing in the sea on one particularly beautiful evening. We had fish and chips by the pier and went on a 2 and half hour boat ride to see a large group of seals, you would have liked it, there was hundreds of different nesting birds all...

May 28, 2013 - Our month and half in Scotland

Well we have been living in our little caravan in Scotland for just over a month, and I think we have settled in well we moved after two weeks to another pitch as the first one was to open to the wind that blew across the valley. I feel very relaxed here in Scotland and do not tire of seeing the ochills even when it's grey and cloudy in fact they look just as good when the weather is rough, that's the joy of living near mountains/ hills. I like the fact that we are involved more with the outdoors now for instance we go out to the washing...

Apr 16, 2013 - After the Scottish takeover I've hit the low lands

After the physical and mental exertions of gutting the House, leaving family, and towing the caravan to Scotland. I was on a high, ready to go forth and conquer Scotland, clean caravan, fix home and get started in homeschooling again which I have to say has been a little lacking ( but then the experience of the move and relocation is an education in its self). I was all set to go ... but instead i find us in the first week, back in the lowlands. ( figuratively speaking ) to day is Tuesday and andy's second day of work, it's 11am and...
