On Friday (22/8) Anne and Edward left us. They were picked up from Marsworth by Fred & Margaret, Anne’s parents, and went home to Sheffield. We will miss their good company, their crewing skills and our laughs together.

Waiting at Seabrook Locks

We left Marsworth in the afternoon in bright sunshine and travelled down to Slapton. The views of the Chilterns were great. The lion at Whipsnade looked very prominent. However, before we left Marsworth we had some excellent sandwiches at the Bluebells Cafe. Along with the Lockside cafe at Cowley, this is another example of a canal-side cafe that is really providing good food.
