Braunston Locks

Braunston Marina

With the change of the clocks at the weekend it is going to take a few days to become accustom to the difference. More so for Paddy. Unlike at the spring change where suddenly his dinner and walks are an hour early, to have them an hour later this time of year is very confusing  for him.

We were fortunate this morning in that the boat Slipstream that was moored behind us overnight wanted to share locks, which was great, no having to wait for someone to turn up. With 3 men on-board we soon had the locks dealt with, and Jo found a mooring just past Butcher’s Bridge, where I pulled in and we moored up behind Aldgate. Maffi and Molly arrived just as we were mooring up and Jo made coffee and tea for the 3 of us, and we chatted and put the world to rights. We then headed for Midland Chandlers to pick up a few bits and pieces, and on our way back popped into Tony Redshaw’s to pick up some green paint for the engine.

Lunch was breakfast mushrooms on toast.

Just to let you know that the 3 men on Slipstream; Roger, Colin and Brian enjoyed your company on the descent to Braunston. We all admired Hadar and enjoyed the unique sound. Not sure we would want to follow you through tunnels though!

Hello Roger, Colin and Brian, it was a pleasure to have your company down the locks. Apparently as long as you are not too close it isn't too bad, according to some friends who followed us through a tunnel.
