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.
Party time on No Problem and left to right we have Vic, Ann, Sue, Chas, John.

No Problem & Moore2Life moored at Braunston. NB Valerie is the last boat in the line.

Approaching Norton Jct. On the horizon can be seen boats moored and the footbridge on the Leicester Arm of the Gd. Union.
