Wig Wams

Road sign

Saturday afternoon was the Village fete - we spotted the poster on Friday and decided to stay another day to go and have a gander. They had a lovely sunny day for it and it was a real country fair. Lots of old games for the kids.

Of course, the best thing about it was the old cars!!!

Anyway, half an hour walk around covered it and we were back to the boat.

As we left the mooring this morning we met an Australian couple on bicycles - here visiting relatives and using their bikes whilst the rellies went to Church.

We past a farm yesterday on our walk into Slapton which had a sign outside for Wigwams. I just assumed that they made and sold kiddies tents!! Not so, as we went past the property on the canal this morning we saw the Wigwam sign and then came upon the actual Wigwams!!

We went through 4 locks today and then decided to stop as we spotted a decent moooring site. We are near Cheddington, so walked into the village this afternoon.

Love this road sign.
