Today’s post follows on from yesterday’s. That post ‘Lambing – a tale of two seasons’ visited Ivinghoe Beacon and contrasted two shoots of the Lambing Season. A walk in warm sunshine makes a man thirsty – and a woman too. And so on the way home we repaired, as is our custom, to a convenient hostelry – Grove Lock – beside the canal just south of Leighton Buzzard, where a Marina has recently been developed. A recommended pub if you are passing and a lovely place to down a beverage whilst sitting in the great outdoors watching the world drift by.
Last year we downed a couple (one each, someone was driving) of Peroni Nastro Azzurro, an Italian Beer, served in attractively shaped and beautifully engraved glasses. That called for a picture, naturally.
My activities attracted some highly curious looks from lads at adjoining tables who must have wondered whether I was from the Health Inspectorate checking the clarity of the beer, or had been let out of the local Secure Establishment for the afternoon!
This seems to be a sensible way to conclude a busy week. We’ve all earned a drink or two, anyone out there building up a thirst? Enjoy the weekend.
Cheers, Salut, Santé everyone!
