Sunday 15th May, 2016 in Braunston.
Yet another beautiful sunny morning.
As this domestic altercation took place right where the sun was reflecting on the water, R was denied his photograph!
The journey down to Braunston is only a couple of miles and so only took about 40 minutes. We arrived to the sound of Braunston church bells calling the faithful to prayer. Lovely.
The two iron bridges mark the location of Braunston Turn where the Grand Union Canal meets the Oxford Canal.
We moored right next to the entrance to Braunston Marina and were surprised and delighted to see our friend Sue walking across the bridge. Sue and her husband Andrew own the Fernwood narrowboat "La Tortuga", which was exhibited at the Crick boat show last year.
We had booked them into a B&B in the village for the two nights but the plan was that they would spend the days with us.
They duly arrived at teatime so we took them up to their B&B to get settled. It turned out to be absolutely lovely - a completely self contained cottage on the High Street. Perfect!
We returned to MM for a champagne reception and a delicious dinner on board thanks to M's wonderful cooking skills (says R).
