Gales in Braunston

We had a wet and windy night last night but still managed to get a good nights sleep. We set off at around 10.00am and made our way in very tricky conditions into Braunston. We had to dodge a fallen tree on the way. It was very busy in the village and we found a slot which was just too small for Derwent6 to fit into, so we asked the boat behind us to move forward a metre or two, which he kindly did for us.The boat in front also came out to help and we soon got talking to them. We found out that Laura & Robin on n.b.Miss Matty were the successors to Jo and Keith on n.b Hadar, as they had won the best dressed this year at the Canal Cavalcade in Little Venice in London.
We chilled out in the afternoon and then in the evening went over to The Boatman where Tanya was treating us to drinks. We treated her with a Two for One Steak. We sat next to the Christmas Tree (Yep it is only fourteen weeks away!)

We waited for the rain to stop before staggering back to Derwent6, dodging the puddles, and crashing into bed.

Hi Guys.

Lovely photo of Laura and Robin with the Vict Trott Trophy. It was nice to see who it went to this year. We saw them a month or so ago and they said they had won it.
Glad to see all is well with the pair of you.
We are heading for Stoke Bruerne for the Village at War Weekend.
Happy cruising Jo x
