A very cold day, but at least it was dry and the sun did try to come out, occasionally.

We shared all the locks today with Andrew on his narrowboat Boudica, and a pleasure it was too, together we managed to do in 1 day what we had planned to do in 2 days!

Hello,

Glad you're slightly ahead of schedule and it is heartening to know that I wasn't holding you up. Good luck on your onward journey.

Andy on Boudica

PS. Fantastic looking (and sounding) boat, I'm jealous :)

Not at all Andy you helped us a great deal, always makes it easier when sharing locks. You helped us do in one day what we would have done in 2 on our own.
