Well getting to Braunston was a must for me as i knew Sue/Vic on no problem and Chas/Ann on Moore2Life would be passing through following their summer on the Nene.
I first met Sue/Vic at Bedford some 14 months ago before i had NB Valerie built. Reading blogs and any thing connected with canals was my way of life once i had decided to retire and live afloat. Reading Sue`s blog ( link on left, please try it) and picking her very knowledgable brain via e-mail led to that visit and we kept in touch ever since.
Also i would regularly talk to Chas of Moore2Life via instant messenger and wanted so much to meet both him and his wife Ann.
So after checking Sue`s blog i estimated the arrival of both boats and met them half way down the Braunston flight. After introductions and a big hug from Sue - thanks Sue that made feel really welcome- we had some home made soup and a good chin wag.
Saturday night myself and John on NB TUI who i have travelled with all summer were invited aboard No Problem for a good drink.
A wonderful 3 days in the excellent company of 4 nice people. Thankyou.
