The family has arrived! Our daughter Sharon and her two youngest Joanne and Alice ...
It was Alice’s birthday on Monday so it was a cake, a candle and a song as soon as they arrived.
Off cruising today in the hot sunshine a bit later than we would usually set off ...
... there was a lot more traffic about - the wide beam on the right wanted to pass us and then he met a boat coming round the corner and ended up in the trees.
Alice helping Grandad to open Fenny Stratford swing bridge and lock gates - thank you AliB!
A wide canal - thank goodness
... and the surprise meeting? We’d just come through bridge 102 to see someone waving to us from the off-side... who can it be?
... of course we pulled alongside and had a quick catch-up, they both looked very well. Sorry we couldn’t have the visit we planned but hopefully we’ll see you when we return to Militon Keynes at the weekend.
And the family? A lovely lunch, a relaxing afternoon and a bbq to end a great day. Fantastic!
