School Reunion

After winding (turning around) Chance at Brewood we headed back to Wheaton Aston on Thursday, the weather was good so at least we could get the washing out when we moored up!

On Friday morning, Doug travelled on the train from Penkridge to Swindon to stay with eldest daughter Vicki and partner Tom for the night as he had a school reunion to attend at Hardenhuish School in Chippenham.  Whilst James and Oscar are staying on the boat for the weekend.


The class of ‘84, well some of us anyway!

A great evening was had by all, it was incredible to meet up with people you hadn’t seen for 27 years! so there was certainly plenty to talk about, funny how so many of us were nervous about going back to school though….


Clare, Doug and Julia


Chrissie (one of our very loyal blog readers!) and Rose..


Paul and Doug, (said I would put a picture of you on the blog mate!)

Sadly I left my camera at home so had to make do with these pictures from my phone that were taken.

Today, Doug is travelling back home to West Sussex for the weekend, until Monday when he will return to nb Chance.


  1. Lovely to see you again Doug! And remember you are very welcome to visit if you're in Aylesbury/Tring area!xxxx

  2. It was really good to see James and Chance in Gnosall today. Hope to catch up with you again sometime. Have a good trip. Angela and Graham on NB Banjo
