Our 32nd Wedding Anniversary

Well today is our Wedding Anniversary and we got up nice and early to do our Tesco's shop and we thought we might as well have some breakfast as we were out.. we got back to Derwent6 at 9.30am and set off at 10.15am for a bit of a cruise today.. We just wanted to get back into a routine of what our life's all about and what we enjoy doing. We made our way through Hillmorton Locks which were in our favour, these were the first locks Al had done since September last year, when her Dad fell ill.
We even managed to help a single hander who was going up with us in the other single lock. It was so quiet, when we got to the top it was clear to Braunston and we only passed one other boat on the way, it was lovely...
It did turn a bit colder and more layers had to be added to keep warm but we were having fun.. 
We got to Braunston and then turned towards Napton, once again all pretty quiet..
It was easy cruising all the way to the bottom of the Napton flight where we turned and managed to get a mooring ok..
A good days cruising of five and a half hours.. On the way we did meet up with Garry and Beryl on n.b. The Answer and had a chat for half an hour.. Del held Derwent6 in the cut as we chatted because there was nothing about.. it was lovely to catch up with them..
We had booked a table in The Folly Pub and took a couple of hours out to thaw out a bit before getting ready for our meal at seven...
We had a great time with a lovely meal reminiscing over the last 32 years together..
Was was the best time we had over those years?...  We both still agreed it was the Wedding and our honeymoon to Florida, our first trip abroad, which still tops the lot, and we have travelled..
The evening finished with two guys who had brought guitars and did a little session before we left.. It was the perfect end to the perfect day.
We got back to Derwent6 at 10.pm and fell into bed after our long day, but at least we had made the most of it..
