With the weather forecast telling us the day will get worse we decide to continue on to Great Bedwyn. Drizzle continued to fall as we made our way down the 4 locks and found a nice vacant spot right next to the road bridge leading into the village. After lunch the rain eased off so I walked into the village where the book says there is a nice bakery. The book's right, it's small but the choice is good, particularly the lardy cakes. The pieces look huge and when the lad in front of me asked for a 1/2 piece I thought "that's more like it". but the woman put one of the large pieces into a bag and gave it to him. When I asked for a piece she said do you want a 1/2 or a whole piece? It seems that some people actually have a piece twice the size of the one I thought was already huge.
During the afternoon there were several heavy downpours but right now the sun is shining. Tomorrow it is supposed to rain again so we'll see how it goes.
We're moored up just above the bridge in the middle of this link.
