Braunston

 Before we headed for bed last night the rain was coming down in stair rods, next morning it was all clear for our cruise into Braunston.

Neat bird box

An anxious mooring!

Fabulous turfed turnover bridge.
We took Braunston Turn to the right and reversed back onto Midland Chandlers mooring to pick up some bog blue. It was still only 09:00 so not many boats had moved on, we did find a space opposite The Boathouse, their free wifi is drifting into FL so I'm posting this on it. I'm not uncomfortable with that as we will be using the premises later, taking the occasional single handed trader along with us.

When we turned up at the Boathouse for a two for one meal deal in the evening the place was very busy with queues at the bar. The food was the usual chain pub fare, later when Sue retired back to the boat, Barry and I stopped off at the Plough on the way home. Much later it was a dark walk home along the towpath without a torch.

Saturday-  4000 revellers are expected in Braunston for the Admiral Nelson music festival, we wanted somewhere a bit quieter, after visiting the Braunston butcher we winded FL topped up the water tank and cruised out of the village for a couple of miles to moor near bridge 100.

Skinny bridge 100
