As you can see there is room for two boats and the edging is far superior to some in this area. Assuming this has been done with full permission of CRT what do you think?

We were moored up at Hawksbury Junction, waiting for the lousy weather to pass. The weather gods threw everything at us: pounding rain, gale force winds, and lashing hail with thinder and lightening punctuated by slim bands of sunshine for three days in a row. While moored there we encountered several boaters.
The first was Logan on NB Sleepy Jean. He is a doctor-in-training who lives on a narrowboat. Jaq first met Logan in Warwick when she broke the ice and moved the boat last January before her knee surgery while I was in Warwick Hospital. We were pleased to pass his blue boat on our way to Hawksbury Junction. Logan and his room mate Kate move their boat to a new area whenever their hospital
|Me and Logan come in from the hail.|
A few days later Logan was out jogging and caught up with us. After a stoveside natter to warm up, he was off again in the hail! Logan was kind enough to offer me a ride and some assistance collecting a rather large item from B & M. Keep an eye out for his boat and give him a wave. It is great to have someone from the younger generation joining the boater's community.

We finally got ourselves organized, cruised off to fill up with water, dump the rubbish before leaving Hawksbury while the weather was in our favour. The best laid plans...while Jaq walked over to a nearby shop for a Saturday paper, I got to nattering with a very nice couple walking their dogs along the towpath. They are thinking about getting a boat, and stopped to ask a few questins, as you do. Before long the four of us talked non-stop until the water tank filled and longer! By the time we said goodbye, the weather had changed again so we set off in our reindeer (for those who are not "in" the know, check out the lower paragraphs of Jaq's blog post on her blog So This is Love, for a clue!) while the weather pummeled us until we were blue with cold! Still, for us a bad day of boating beats a great day at nearly anything else!!
