Next morning a familiar boat came through Northgate locks being Del and Al on Derwent6 who moored directly behind AmyJo.
Now call me daft if you will but seeing AmyJo and Derwent6 together is quite a big deal for me and something I always hoped I would see.
If any of you have followed our blog from the early days will know Del and Al showed us around Derwent6 at Crick when we were first looking to have AmyJo built. We then met them again the following year at Wrenbury on the Llangollen canal. It was at this meeting that after talking to them our dream suddenly became a reality thanks to their advise
So seeing Derwent6 and AmyJo together for me represents the start of our journey towards living the dream and AmyJo the dream come true.
On Thursday Del and Al went off to explore the city as this was their first time here with Derwent6 so they wanted to make the most of it.
In the evening we found out there was live entertainment in Telford's Warehouse and being music lovers we went over and had a great night listening to Alex Green who was absolutely brilliant.

with us so not a good quality picture.
It was fab to see them again and we thoroughly enjoyed their company once again. Hats of to them for keeping the boat immaculate. Derwent6 gleams as good as new even though she is now 9 ears old. Now where is that polish Chris?
