Other than one early shower, the day stayed dry. We arrived at Foxton Locks at mid-day, turned above the locks and moored up close to a magnificent bronze statue of a working horse with its "boy".
At the top of the locks is a cafe in what was once the Lock Keeper's cottage - in fact the Lock Keeper is still there!
On the way back to MM, we passed a robin (the feathered variety) sitting close to us on a post and chirping happily. R (the non-feathered one) chirped back and the robin stood for a while with his head cocked on one side listening intently. What was he thinking, we wondered?
