Weekend

On Saturday we drove to Stoke Bruerne but didn't stay long as it was really chilly. Stoke Bruerne is a village in Northamptonshire on the Grand Union Canal. It has been described as "the best example of a canal village in England".

Sunday was the last day of this year for enjoying a steam-engine powered ride on the Leighton Buzzard narrow-gauge railway (it's diesel engines from now on until next Summer). Good family fun.

Sim! Para elas foi a primeira vez, para mim e para o M, como sabes, não foi. Ficámos todos cheios de fuligem, pior do que na viagem a Lousã. Foi giro.
