THURSDAY 25TH JUNE 2009
More friends joining us this evening for a pub meal and the destination was the Globe Inn, just to the North of Leighton Buzzard by bridge 111. First we stopped for supplies at Tescos, another one right on the canal, just as it approaches the urbanization of Linslade and Leighton Buzzard.
Unusually for us we moored right outside this lovely olde worlde pub. Normally I don’t like to risk being disturbed during the night by silly people, but as the pub is quite remote and the folk sitting outside enjoying the sunshine didn’t look too scary I took a chance.
Graham and his brother Malcolm and his wife Pauline, long time friends of Jacquie from her Luton days, arrived spot on time and we no doubt made the prospect much scarier for anyone else contemplating mooring alongside us, as we sat canal side enjoying our pre-dinner drinks. The food was good, especially the desert, ‘Trio of Puds’ for two to share, the service friendly and the ambiance and setting great and a very enjoyable evening was had by all.
