Village at War Weekend and beyond.

Hi Folks. I am sorry I have not posted any photographs from our fantastic weekend at The Village at War Weekend, this has been due to a very poor signal on my dongle. However all is not lost Keith has posted some on Hadar's BLOG. We had an absolutely amazing time and I want to thank everyone for taking the time to come and say "Hello" to us both, you all help to make the weekend for me. The list is endless so I will just say a Huge Thank You to you all. 
Today was leaving day.
We travelled from Stoke Bruerne to Norton Junction 14.8 miles, worked 7 locks in a time of 7 hours 10 minutes.

8am we set off through the tunnel. Back to Gayton Junction where we took on water etc. 

We passed our friends Elaine and David on NB Patience, they had just got back from a weekend away, so we had a quick chat as we passed, it was then onward to the Buckby flight of locks. I made us a coffee and we also had some warmed up sausage rolls on route.
At Gayton Sheila and Colin on Milan had passed us, but we caught them up and they allowed us to pass them as they were heading to their home mooring at Bugbrooke and were in no hurry. It was wonderful to meet them at Stoke Bruerne, they are such a wonderful couple and we look forward to seeing them again sometime.
When we got to the locks NB Moonshadow was ready and waiting for us in the lock, they had waited 25 minutes for another boat to arrive on the request of the volunteer lock keeper. We shared the locks with them all the way to the top. 
Having cleared the locks we moored up just after Norton Junction on a mooring we have never been able to get on to before.
It has been a longish day for us and I think I will have nice hot shower and an early night.
