Milton Keynes

Winter cruising is always slower than the summertime with frequent moorings as we slowly journey south. No rush to go anywhere and the cold winds of late make the decision to stay fireside with a book so appealing.

We spent a few days north of Milton Keynes and on Saturday made a move to fill up with water and shed a large black bag of rubbish. While on the water point Gary on the fuel boat Ascot came by so he gained our custom that Jules on Towcester could not satisfy 5 days ago as we passed  by each other at Cosgrove. Fifty seven litres of diesel, 2 bags of coal and a bottle of propane.

The water tank is full and fuel stocks are good so off we went to find a mooring at Campbell Park near the shopping centre at central Milton Keynes. At lunchtime not sure of our final plans we walked into MK and visited the outdoor market to stock up on fruit and vegetables.

Having made this walk several times over the years by a different route we followed the signs this time and had a pleasant 20 mins walk through the park. The route passed the cricket ground and then the open air theatre then up the hill to the highest part of the park the light pyramid giving views across Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire.

Forgot the camera so all the pictures are from Googley Imagery.

Milton Keynes open air market and below the stall we made most use of.
 Aerial view of the cricket ground. Note the stepped grass tiers to sit and watch the game.
The open air theatre also had the same seating for the public as the cricket ground. 
The point with nice views is lit at night.
