What a lovely day. We took in the Easter service at All Souls, Braunston, had coffee in the good ship, Bones, then propped Bella for travel. We set out, pulled in by Bones who then set out behind us, then made for Braunston bottom lock. As there was a queue, we waited with an ice cream, then started the fun. What a hoot! Boats all over the place with lockside help from various crew from other boats, the pub garden, folk festival friends and children on scout type trips. Brilliant. We did the six locks and stopped at the top to wait for a friend. We'll have our Easter dinner, sleep well then head for Stowed Hill tomorrow.

Ah. The first evening on the cut this Spring. We've had a busy few days helping our friend, Bones, travel from Cropredy to Napton with her at the tiller and Pete and Elizabeth lock side. It was wonderful and we really got the itch. Tomorrow we'll wander down to Braunston then meet up with Bones who travelled there from Napton. Together after Easter, we'll be a team to Stoke Bruerne. If this weather holds out, it will be amazing!
