Off Again!

We left Crick Marina at 0700 on Friday 26th, bound for Watford Locks, as they opened at 0800. We were very surprised to find a hire boat filling with water at the top lock, they waved us on, so we were first down the flight. The essence of this cruise is that we will travel early in the day, but only a few hours a day. By 1000 we were moored for the rest of the day, on the main line, just south of Daventry reservoir. We spent a pleasant day doing a number of simple, but useful jobs on the boat and walking up to the reservoir with the dogs.

On Saturday we were moored in Braunston at 0815, for a newspaper, breakfast at The Gongoozler and visits to both chandlers. We then staggered round the corner, past the puddlebanks and are moored on a nice piece of armcote with a view! Tomorrow we will set off for Oxford, we may turn around before getting there though. - Watch this space!!
