Sunshine left Stoke Bruerne just after eight o' clock and by the time we emerged from the far end of Blisworth tunnel the mist had cleared and the sun had broken through. We were puzzled though as we neared the exit by a number of bright flashes in the distance. They turned out to have been coming from the crew of an approaching boat taking photos of the tunnel from outside.
We stopped at Stowe Hill Wharf to visit some friends of my hosts on their boat there. It says a lot about me that I can't remember their names, but their boat was called Second Star on the Right (the reference is from Peter Pan, apparently). I do remember that we were treated to some excellent home-baked scones though!
