pub-side entertainment, or rural travel methods? Marsworth saturday afternoon

pub-side entertainment, or rural travel methods? Marsworth saturday afternoon

I’ve had good times exploring the Grand Union Canal. The 4 days with Nigel were a bonus, and having someone to reminisce about great times past was special. We toured from Uxbridge to Berkhamsted, where Nigel caught the train: the station was about 50m from the canal, so not to difficult a transition. The only impediment was a pub, but we were able to avoid that (it was noon…). I hung around Berkhamsted for the day, intending to ring with their scheduled practice, but no one showed. Oh well, I didn’t call ahead, so that must be expected that plans change.

I have then continued the journey north. I paused at Marsworth for a day of inclement weather (wind and rain) but yesterday was a glorious autumn day, so I made the best of that and continued on to Leighton Buzzard. Another interesting name… The sun is out again, and I’ll continue this gorgeous cruising opportunity.
