Summer Cruise#1 Day 2

It’s all torment for me – when’s dinner?
Despite the forecast – brilliant sunshine and the may blossom is brilliant – chugging down the wide canal and in to the dreaded Braunston tunnel.  Unusually, we meet not a soul inside.
Little companion greets us as we tie up near Braunston locks
We met Paul on Rhiannon and agreed to share locks. Nice chap, on his way to Rugby to meet family.
Skipper Steve sinking slowly in Braunston lock
Skipper Paul leaps into action. Rare to get pictures of yourself when you’re doing all the filming. His family are hiring a boat for 3 days from Rugby – so I guess we’ll see them all in convoy soon. Have fun.
More wildlife out on the cut
And even more wildlife in the boat getting her reward – the last hot-cross bun. Looks like El Toro is watching with envy??  She did do well – all those locks! Marvellous for her age. 😉
The Huawei gadget we use to keep connected with the web.  Hard to make phone calls but 4G all the way with this.
After a brief stop over in Braunston – more meat from the fab butchers then we chug on just a bit further to a quieter spot by bridge 87.  Forecast looks set to be brilliant – even 19 on Sunday!  Might just stay here . . .
