21st May 2011 scarecrows on route?

the Bridge inn great Italian (they served beer as well)

The scarecrows having a pint

Our first task today was to walk into Barton-Under-Needwood to get some supplies.  We found a footpath which took us past two lakes.   After we had shopped we passed a pub where three scarecrows were ‘having a pint’ and were invited to make a scarecrow for the village scarecrow weekend in June.  Near where we were moored we saw a sign for ‘free range eggs’ and stopped to buy some.

After lunch we walked to Shobnall Marina (along the tow path) and bumped into Iain Jones who surveyed Shell Bell before we bought her. By the time we got back to the mooring there were about ten to twelve other boats moored up..  As a treat we had an Italian meal at The Bridge Inn – lovely.

    Looking at that picture I can see the cannal life is making you both look a lot younger. Oh and another pint in the pub I see.
