Tuesday 4th June, 2013 still at Braunston
A lovely sunny morning, although the wind is still cold. Our mooring is opposite a colourful field full of tall, wild buttercups.
Meanwhile we walked up to the "Admiral Nelson" pub, next to lock 3 of the Braunston flight with a view to booking in for dinner with Angela this evening.
Angela returned later in the afternoon and announced happily: "I've bought a boat!" It appears that nb "Petit Hibou" turned out to be more or less what she was looking for and a bargain to boot.
In the evening, we all went up to the "Admiral Nelson" to celebrate with another bottle of "Anything but Merlot" (Angela likes red wine as long as it's not Merlot!).
On the way up to the pub we saw, in the evening sunlight, that the chimney of the old pumping station had "GJC 1897" on the side in the pattern of the bricks.
Today: No miles.
