The weather look set fair and so once Chris was up and had her coffee we put AmyJo on the fuelling jetty for a pump out and by 9am left the marina. We turned left and crept past Oakfield though there was no sign of anyone about.
Once out in the sunshine we soon dried off and enjoyed the warmth of the morning going to the Watford locks where there was a queue of boats so we had to wait nearly 2 hours to descend to make way for the historic boats heading for Foxton for the weekend.
As the day went on the sun got warmer and warmer, barely a cloud in the sky but this formation caught our eye
Just after Norton we spotted a boat head so tailed him through Braunston tunnel. Like the other weekend this chap was going so slow that in Braunston tunnel I had to stop completely twice otherwise I would have caught up to him. Other boats coming the other way were not making thinks any better and there was an almighty bang as he passed one oncoming boat. I hope there was not too much damage but the other boat owner did not look very happy when he passed us though he did give us a thanks for going so carefully as he passed us without a bump.
Once through Braunston locks we passed the marina and was surprised to see this boat in there. Don’t think they will get far in that somehow I think that mast may be a problem.
