Well worth the Effort

Sometimes I see somewhere on the map and I think it would be good to go there!  Trouble is - most of them are uphill!  Today I decided we should climb to the top of Ivinghoe Beacon!  This involved a three mile cycle ride, locking up the bikes and walking the rest of the way.  It was so worth it - the views from the top are just fantastic.

This is part of a national walk called The Ridegway which starts in Wiltshire and ends about here.  The chalk lion is apparently something to do with Whipsnade Zoo!  The highest point is 750 feet above sea level.
It's all about doing things when you can isn't it?  "Live for the moment without hesitation ....."

We have moved to a mooring just below Church Lock.  This stretch of the Grand Union from Marston Junction to Leighton Buzzard is really lovely.  There are horses in fields both sides of us and the little River Ouzel just a short walk away over a field.
