Brinklow – Braunston
Today felt like summer, it was definitely a hat and sunglasses and plenty of water sort of day to be outside.
We stopped behind a familiar boat when we tied up for provisions in Rugby, the Milly M, Maffi’s boat. He wasn’t in but we arranged to meet up later.
No queues at Hillmorton which was surprising, and then we were in Braunston, in time to pop in to the Chandlers. Our friends Mikey and Katie of Victoria and Mercury were also there by coincidence so it was nice to catch up with them.
Also in Braunston were Simon and Ann of Melaleuca, and we were pleased to catch up with them too. In the evening we went to the Admiral Nelson with them and Maffi which was very pleasant. Good food and beer. A was fast asleep when we arrived until the bar skittles woke him! But he was good as gold through dinner then fell asleep in the buggy on the way home. Getting him over the ladder bridge was interesting – James and Simon carried the buggy over between them.
The clocks go forward tonight, I wonder if A has got the message?
