Thursday 23rd June, 2016 near Newton Harcourt.A momentous day for this country and for Europe. We spent it cruising gently through beautifully quiet countryside (having voted in the referendum by post).
We left Market Harborough Wharf after breakfast and retraced our steps back to the bottom of Foxton Locks. On the way, we passed Bridge House Barn, a rural, tented, wedding venue, with a rather unusual signpost. We looked up their website and it looks really lovely as a venue with a difference.
We both admired these two classic motorbikes as we walked back from the Museum. Their owners, two old boys, were very proud of them - and rightly so.
Thank heavens for mobile phones - so M phoned R, who was waiting patiently at the end of the tunnel. Eventually MM hove into view through the trees; M was mightily relieved!
Trip: 121 miles, 64 locks and 94.8 hours.
