Tied up in Braunston.
Took Paddy out for his walk this morning and a Tufted duck swam by. There were two males and a female about.
Beautiful morning with the sun shining on the fields of gold.
At bridge 100 I saw someone waving to me as she came towards me and it was Pip and Ozzy. It has been an age since we have seen them, although I do have Pip on my Facebook. It was not long before Roger passed up on their boat Windsong.
Sad to see an old wooden boat looking so distressed.
First sighting of Braunston Church.
The moorings were actually quiet with plenty of spaces, so we arrived at the right time and tied up opposite The Boat House pub. I dare say whilst here we will have a meal there.
We sold some coal to John on NB Samsara. John has been reading Hadar's Blog since we started it, so thank you John for that and your custom.
We took ourselves off to the Chandlers to buy paint and bits for the boat, so more money spent. It also gave us a chance to say "Hello" to the people we know in Braunston.
As the afternoon progressed towards the evening, who should come towards us both our great friends on NB Tickety Boo with their lovely dog. They pulled alongside and we had a quick catch-up, before they had to get on their way. Today has been a day of catching up with lots of people.
