Visitors Welcome !
We have had a flurry of unexpected visitors over the last few days.
As we were sitting down to eat our tea on Sunday evening Margaret spied a familiar face on the towpath opposite. Jane and Dick from Hughenden Valley popped in on their way home from Quainton. We spent an enjoyable evening catching up on news and putting the world right. On Monday evening Frank (yes, the one from Trouble with France) arrived en route from Robin Hood's Bay to Kent. Not being up to date with the recent changes in our itinerary he struck the Grand Union somewhat north of our location but made good time from bridge 99 to Aylesbury. Unfortunately he looked too shifty for anyone to let him into the basin and he had to hail us from across the canal. As he was in his camper van he was able to stay overnight in the basin car park before resuming his journey. We used his visit as an excuse to go out for a curry.
On our way up to Marsworth on Wednesday I received a phone call informing me that I had won a prize in the Wendover Arm raffle. Nothing very great but we arranged to take delivery in Leighton Buzzard. By the time we arrived in Leighton Buzzard we had another visitor - Andrew with his lurcher, Speedy,returning from Huntingdonshire to Bucks. Whilst we were sitting on the towpath in the sun with Andrew the prize delivery arrived and it turned out to be better than we had expected.
And on Saturday we are expecting a visit from the World Famoous Author who has just published another book - Hunting the Golden Lion. (£7.99 from Queen Anne's Fan) or any really good book shop.
