Wintering In Milton Keynes.

A lovely Sunny warm day, enjoyed by all, even this Heron doing a spot of fishing from the roof .
we are on our way to Cosgrove for the night.
We moored here for  night, in Cosgrove.
This heron seemed interested in Brian's Heron sculpture , perhaps he thought he'd found a mate.
No not a giant key hole! this is a tunnel under the canal specially shaped for the working horses to go through, or rotund people with bandy legs?
Wolverton Aqueduct, the iron trough carrying boats over the Great Ouse, built in 1811 and still carrying boats.
The view from Emily Bronte as we pass over the river.
 Favourite meal of the crew, Brians home made Sundried tomato and Parmesan loaf ,cheese on toast .
Simple pleasures!
Moored at Grafton Regis.
The home of the white Queen  (Elizabeth Woodville, Queen consort to King Edward iv was born in Woodville manor house, west of the current village )
