The Grafton Regis Whale
We have had a great few days at Grafton Regis. There are some very good walks in the area and the locals are really friendly.
Sunset over Grafton Regis
Friday morning was spent polishing the port side of Inca.(Looking good)
Then on Friday afternoon we had a walk up to the village. There is only one pub and no shops, but there is the church where Elizabeth Woodville married King Edward IV in 1464.
Then Carolyn spotted this Whale.....I wonder how it got here? .
Then Back at Inca and this boat went by....Carolyn loved it, but I hated it.
A sheep with 2 heads !!!.
Our mooring at Cosgrove.
On Monday morning we pulled pins at 08.40 and as we did it decided to pour with rain.We didn't want to move but we were running out of basic supplies and a cup of tea just doesn't taste the same with powdered milk. It was only 2 or 3 miles to Cosgrove so we carried on in the rain. It rained most of the way and I got a bit wet , but it was still a very enjoyable cruise. We are moored near to the Main street in Cosgrove as we have done another Tesco delivery shop. It should be with us between 09.00 and 10.00 on Tuesday morning.(Fingers crossed)
We are now on 48 hour moorings so we will move again on Wednesday.
