We are still at the end of the Wendover arm and enjoying the peace and tranquility of the area. We feel a bit like Billy no mates as we are the only boat moored at the end , but its just the way we like it and apart from a couple of Fishermen and the odd walker it is so peaceful.
Yet again another boat gets wedged across the canal. Instead of putting the bow in to the corner like you would in a winding hole they try to turn in one maneuver and with a bit of wind and the canal not being wide enough they get well and truly stuck. Yet again I was told by her ladyship to get off my fat bum and go and help them.
On Wednesday we walked in to Tring and then went to The Natural History Museum. The museum was a private museum built by Lionel Walter , 2nd Baron Rothschild and was built in 1889 and contains one of the largest collections of stuffed animals in the country.
In 2011 a thief broke in to the museum and stole the horns from 2 rhinos , but the horns valued at £240,000 had been replaced by false ones before the break-in . The silly sod who broke-in was arrested and charged with theft.
We all really enjoyed our visit to the museum and we all learnt a lot as we wandered around the exhibits. If ever you are in the area it is well worth a visit……… And one of the best things I liked about the museum ………. it is FREE to go in.
