Just us and the sheep in Campbell Park

Today was a wash out as far as travel was concerned. Constant rain and a gale of wind made moving the boat inadvisable so we stayed where we were. You can just about make out our boat, moored beside Campbell Park in Milton Keynes.

The path leads past the totem pole…

…and the open air theatre….

The only place where there was any life at all was in the large mall where we also came across a display of the famous Milton Keynes concrete cows.

On the way back down I was hoping that the view from the beacon might be a bit clearer.
