Bridge 103 to Braunston

A very windy day, which made it a bit interesting travelling this morning. I am convinced that these strong winds will remain with us until we load with coal, whilst the bow is light and vulnerable to wind.

We were able to moor at The Boathouse, and visited Midland Chandlers for some bits. We returned to the boat and had lunch at The Boathouse, before returning to Midland Chandlers for some other bits, which we needed to take measurments on the boat for. During our first visit to MC, we noticed Narrowboat "Boston" moored on the towpath opposite, so on our 2nd visit we decided to return via the towpath to see how Bruce was doing. He was looking very good and back to his old self, thank goodness. We took a long time to get back to Hadar, as we then chatted to and had coffee with Anne & Keith on "Oakfield" and then chatted to Tim & Jo on "Hampton".
