We have had this family of Ducks around us for the last couple of days, when we first saw them there were 9 Ducklings then when this picture was taken there were only 8. When we eventually pulled pins there were only 5 left. Fingers crossed that they all make it to become fully grown Ducks as I have read that sometimes only 10% of Ducklings survive to become Ducks.
On our way again after pulling pins at 09.15 and we soon spot the Whipsnade Zoo Lion. He seemed to be a lot whiter than last time we saw him and we wondered if he had a coat of paint or what ever you do to a massive Lion carved into the hill.
We have passed this boat on its mooring many times and I have always looked at the name and thought that it could mean something rather naughty... But in fact after Googling it I discovered that its a type of Golf club with an iron head, the face of which has the greatest slope of all the irons, for hitting the ball with maximum loft. ..Oh well that was a bit if a dissapointment learning that.
Yet again Carolyn is on the helm while I do a few more locks. She is getting very good at steering, apart from when she ripped off our rear fender at the last lock . But then like she said I have done far more damage than that. Anyway after another half an hour and passing Pitstone wharf we moored up below the bottom Marsworth lock where we will have another couple of chilling out days .
