Starting them off young . We now have Curly (number one Granddaughter) with us for the next couple of weeks and she will have to earn her passage. Fortunately a lot of the lock gates are very well balanced ,so even Curly can open and shut a lock gate.
Some of the Ducks at the Tesco moorings in Leighton Buzzard . They must be the best fed Ducks anywhere ,except everybody seems to feed them bread which is not good for them. There is currently a campaign from Canal and River Trust to educate people on what to feed Ducks with.
Un bloody believable , after winding and leaving the services we watched a person with kids feeding the ducks outside the Tesco moorings. When they had fed all their bread to the ducks they just chucked the plastic bread bag into the canal. I managed to grab the bag as we passed it , but felt i should have shouted some
abuse advice at the person involved, but with young children about i some how kept my calm and said nothing.
We then headed back up to bridge 110 for the rest of the day and night. Tomorrow when Curly eventually gets out of bed we will start our journey back North towards Braunston.
