Flying back for Christmas

We travelled back to the marina today on a lovely sunny morning via Foxton...with the help of Lesley, Floyd and Fletcher from n.b.Caxton.... Thanks Lesley! We love the view from these locks you feel you could fly.


We got to the bottom and picked up some coal for the new year (and some chocolate of course)


We filled with water and moved off just before the rain started...(still never got to use the nubrella) We looked back at Foxton and I'm sure we will be doing them again in the new year.

Glad your maiden voyage was a great success. If you can do the Foxton flight you are ready for anything aboard Derwent 6 now.
Merry Christmas to you both, we shall be thinking of you by that warm cosy little squirrel.
