New Year's Day 2013 at Stoke Bruerne

Long Pound, Stoke Bruerne
After so much rain it was a delight to find that the first day of 2013 was clear, dry and bright. We went over to Stoke Bruerne on New Year's Day and walked up the locks to watch the Morris dancing at the top lock. The  Rose and Castle men' side and the Queen's Oak women's side were performing. With the fine weather, the crowds were out in force. We bumped into Colin and Sheila from NB Milan, boating friends for over fifteen years, and had a good chat.
