Braunston (2)

Almost a misty start, but was only low cloud but higher enough not to be misty. The towpaths have suffered this year with the weather, this is how I remember towpaths back in the late 60’s.

Bridge No.79 looks to be finished, and a great job they have made of it too.

We have stopped at Braunston, and went to buy some bits and pieces from Midland Chandlers, mainly a new glass for our stove in the saloon, plus a spare. Les and Jaqueline were taking on water at the water point when we came out of the shop, so we had a quick chat and a cup of coffee and cake with them.
