Aria & Teezy caught up with us while I was still at the workshop & set off again before I got back to the boat so we left immediately I returned. We had one lock then a very long stretch of lock free cruising. Who'd have thought it would be so attractive through Milton Keynes, there are so many parks & lakes it could even be called tranquil in places.
We met up with Aria & Teezy, all mooring together for the night between Wolverton & Cosgrove where many runners passed us. We discovered they were on a charity run from Birmingham to London, over 150 miles, and running through the night with torches strapped to their heads. Now that is dedication for you.

|The problem NUT!|
Luckily the postman was kind to us and the new nut arrived the next morning. It took the yard no time at all to fix it & have us back in the water and on our way.
