Not quite so good

Being Sunday it was time to visit The Navigation for our usual lunch roast.  Jan opted for the beef whilst I chose the pork. 

We are moored in almost the same location as our trip down the Grand Union several weeks ago.  However this time there is more water in the pound and as a result Waiouru doesn’t have a list.

Adjacent to the top lock is the most obvious sign of the former narrow locks that were originally used when the Grand Junction Canal was constructed.

For some reason Stoke Bruerne attracts gongoozlers.  There’s no obvious reason apart from the locks and the attractive location.  I guess it’s similar to Foxton Locks?

There weren’t quite as many people milling around as our last visit, which was probably an advantage when it came to finding a table in The Navigation.

The one thing Jan doesn’t like about The Navigation is their tap cider is Strongbow and she detests the taste (too metallic).

Out of focus

Generous portions, but this time Jan found her beef tasty but slightly tough!

On the move again tomorrow……..
