Cream Crackered.

Hi Friends.

Wow what a day we have had. It has been an extremely long day for us, but also a fantastic day's cruising.
We are now at the Welford Arm, having cruised for 8 hrs and 35mins, doing 17.4 miles and 9 locks. I lost count of how many bridges we went under, or how many boats we saw on the move. It was a very busy day on the water. At the Watford flight I walked up the flight to find the lock keeper to be told there were five boats coming down, so I made us both a coffee and Keith and I helped set the bottom two locks for the five boats coming down. It made sense to help out, so that they could be on their way and we could get up the flight. Keith enjoyed himself chatting to the lockie and I was chatting to the guy who is working on the lock cottage. NB Return to Sender was on one of the boats coming down with Diana and Brian on board. They were in need of some coal, so I unloaded it as we exited the lock, so they could collect it when they entered our lock. Such planning could only be thought of by a woman hahaha, sorry guys. Apparently Diana reads our other blog and has done so for a number a years, which is very sweet of her. maybe next time we will get to chat longer to them both.
I would post more but I am cream crackered, so will have my dinner which is cooking and then relax for the rest of the evening.
