Back on the boat after nearly 3 weeks away helping sort a family crisis made me realise i really
must go back more often as apart from the problem just being near to everyone and being spoilt
with love, scrummy meals and the grandchildren was the main reason i stayed so long.
The hire boats have been out and about for some time now as all the pictures on this page were taken some weeks ago.

While moored at the top of the Buckby lock flight along came Lesley & Joe on Caxton plus Graham & Jill on Matilda Rose. While they took on water we all had good chinwag, so until we meet again have a safe journey guys.
Entering the southern portal of Braunston Tunnel it looks as though it might be a bit of a smokey
journey but as i always travel fast through tunnels the air movement should disperse it away up the vents.
Exiting on the Braunston side it became clear why such a long stoppage had been in place over the winter with still a lot of work in progress.
Looking back above as i head north together with the view as i travelled south last year the extent of the landslide can clearly be seen.

A lot of work on the towpath, mostly to overcome the amount of water coming off the hill and causing the path to be permanently muddy, will be good for the many people that walk up from Braunston to look into the tunnel.

Moored in Braunston this is the view from the side windows.
