Late last night a boat came past us and in the morning taking our tea to bed, we realised who it was. It was Mark on the coal boat n.b Calisto, who had moored in front of us. We also noticed it had snowed and there was ice on the canal, but it was turning into a beautiful day.
When Mark had cleared us, we set of to turn at Braunston. The ice on the cut had turned slushy and we managed to get on the elsan point where we did a manual pumpout, at least that saved us some money.
