I am having to place a watermark on the blog content as someone on Facebook is stealing photos and claiming them as their own. I wouldn't mind if they asked first and attributed it to my blog. If it continues I will name and shame them. I hope it doesn't spoil your enjoyment.

Christmas liqueur in the making.

Had a day off from blogging yesterday, actually I couldn't, there was no signal at all where we were moored. That was out in the sticks again between bridges 68 and 69. We'd moored there on the way up and found it such a nice place. Reeds front and back and a clean well maintained towpath with pilings. Not only but also, SLOES. Not in bucketfuls, but nearly enough to make a litre of sloe gin for Christmas.
Talking of sloes we had a slow journey from Newton Harcourt through five locks and Saddington Tunnel, to our chosen mooring spot, to find someone had already bagged it, but not to worry there was another just like it a few yards before. No internet connection here but good satellite TV, Er'll was happy.
Made it to Foxton today and we wanted to go in the Museum, unfortunately it was closed, but we could take a walk around the grounds and see the remains of the Incline Plane. They're very optimistic about restoring it, but it's going to cost mega bucks.
Here's some Foxton photos:-

We went in the Bridge 61 pub for lunch and very nice it was too. We only had a pint and a baguette and both were very good. The Foxton Locks Inn didn't appeal to us as we like the more traditional, but we're prepared to give it a go one day, but not this evening as it's now raining quite hard. Tomorrow it's the locks and then the Laughton Hills.
