We awoke to a lovely sunny day at Crick Marina. We walked Oscar along the towpath outside the marina and met up with Bruce and Sheila on Sanity Again. Who gave us some useful information on having a show boat at Crick.
A quiet Crick Marina with Chance on its pontoon - by this evening the marina is almost full with 8 boats being craned in and many more arriving by canal. Its been interesting watching all the goings on and the show being set up. We are now no longer alone – having a large wide beam boat on one side and 70 foot long very traditional narrow boat on the other side. To fill in some time James has been polishing and varnishing and then polishing again!
This evening we met up with our neighbours on the Piper Show boat next to us at The Red Lion in Crick village for a very enjoyable pub meal. Oscar came as well, as any mention of the ‘pub’ seems to summon extra enthusiasm to walk!
