We teamed up with Adam and Adrian on nb ‘Briar Rose’ today as they are going to a  new marina on the Grand Union.  We’ll be with them for today and tomorrow.  Mutual friends Mike and Brian are travelling with them so a good time is being had by all!


Here’s Adrian keeping ‘Briar Rose’ steady for the first lock at Hilmorton.


Before stopping for lunch at the top of the Hilmorton flight of locks we first had to do a bit of Good Samaritan work and secure a boat that has come adrift.


A liquid lunch of soup and a glass of wine!  being enjoyed by everyone. L – R  Adrian, Mike, Doug, Adam and Brian (James behind the camera!).IMG_0435

Further on we get a great surprise and met up with Chris and Paul on nb ‘Anjuna’.  We haven’t seen them since we were on our last boat  ‘Spirit’, some 3+ years ago, and it really was special to them again. 


Here we are safely moored up on a peaceful stretch of canal just outside Braunston.  Mike, Brian and Doug on board ‘Chance’ and Adam getting his blogging done before us!!!


An odd shot - a rabbit’s eye view of Horsetail just peeping through on the towpath.
