Days 103 and 104. Braunston here we come.

Hello family, friends and followers.

Yesterday we left Crick, heading off through the tunnel, where there was a Bat flying around in the mouth of the tunnel. The boat in front of us must have disturbed it. Lots of boats heading to the top of Watford locks it seemed.
Arrived at the top lock at Watford and topped up with water, emptied the cassette and got rid of rubbish, so we do not have to bother at Braunston. There were five boats waiting to go down the flight and we were second in the queue. NB Destiny went off in front.
The volunteer lock keepers were on hand to see everyone through, with the greatest of ease. With the 7 locks done, we headed for Norton Junction and turned right heading for Braunston Tunnel.
We met a couple of boats in the tunnel and had a boat in front of us and one behind. But all in all it was uneventful.
We moored up at 12.20 pm, had lunch and then went for a walk to find our friends Ruth and Richard on Mountbatten and Jellicoe, who are booked in for the Braunston Rally on the 29th and 30th June.
By the time we had nattered and laughed, it was getting late, so we trudged back up the hill to the boat. With the idea that we would stay put for the Rally. But then came the news that we could breast up with Ruth and Richard for the Rally, so we would be heading off again in the morning.

Saturday boating for us is not something we usually do, but this morning we had a mooring to get too and so once the locks were opened at 9 am, we joined John and Nev on NB Destiny to descend the flight. We seem to keep meeting up with them and they were an absolute joy to share with.
There were a lot of antics going on with the boats coming up the locks, which made us all giggle.
Once we had finished the flight, we said "Goodbye" and "Thank you" to Nev and John for their wonderful company.
There are a few boats already here for the Rally and more will arrive over the next few days.
W3e moored up in front of Ruth and Richard and will breast up with them, as other boats arrive.

Pop back soon xx
