Just some photos of things I saw over the last couple of weeks..
The fields of wheat look great right now, slowly turning golden. I saw lots of rabbits snuffling away in there as I walked past. Later, foxes too! Foxton is certainly well-named ;-)
A moment later, this boat was almost engulfed in curious cattle, licking the cabin sides.
I watched house martins swooping in to feed their young at a lock-cottage (was out boating with the Herbies) but not one bird would come near when I had a camera in my hand of course! I think their nests are just amazing, like cob houses.
Braunston boat festival - very hot, lots of people, socialising and some great boats.
My own personal boat lust... all that hold, that basic chunky simplicity, yum.
Smeeton Westbury - a village worth wandering across the fields for. At its centre is a big dip, filled with the loveliest allotments although the scarecrow is armed and dangerous.
