Joe took himself into Leicester yesterday by train, a twelve minute journey from Harborough, and I took the dogs out towards Corby and East Carlton Country Park - a change from the towpath.
A view across Northamptonshire from East Carlton.
The bridleway that runs along the park boundary
Opposite the church I came across a couple of paddocks with reindeer grazing
Not sure which one this is but not Rudolph as the nose was definitely not red
Today, Friday, Joe and I went over to Debdale Marina to check on Nb. What a Lark on behalf of David and Lisa and I had a wander around the Foxton lock flight. The work has been completed and the flight is slowly being re-watered.
Site fencing now removed
Side pounds being refilled
C&RT have tidied up this side pound, it was semi-full of rubble, and are now starting to fill it with water
By Sunday the flight will be fully operational I would think
I met this fine beast as I approached Debdale, a Kune Kune pig I think? I stopped and offered a back and ear scratch which was met with grunts of appreciation from my piggy friend - Fletcher and Floyd were less impressed by solicitude .
A happy porker
All looking fantastic out there!ReplyDelete

Angela, John and Lola (who is now fully recovered) n/b "Ellen" xxoo

Quit telling people how beautiful the area is or it will soon be full.ReplyDelete
I know a couple of farmers who said those piggy wiggies were Gloucester Old Spots, but I didn't think they were.
Lisa what do those farmers know about pigs, I ASK YER..?Delete
