It turns out there's a bit of a boat gathering at Braunston this weekend. Old working boats Nutfield and Raymond were moored in the marina. We were out for a walk and got chatting to the folk from "Friends of Raymond" and ended up sitting in the boatmans cabin having a great old chat. We saw a few other old boats about too.
We went to visit Tyson, the fender makers dog and had a good chat with his owner as well. We had a look at the boats for sale and talked with the marina folk. Then it was on to the gorgeous little canal shop up by the first lock.
I had work to do so Mick went off again later in the afternoon to enjoy the sunshine and I stayed in with boats passing by in both directions. We've had a very enjoyable day!
