We spent the weekend getting to the moorings at Foxton Top Lock - fabulous weather, lots of fun and laughter. And a good rest for me from steering, and I got to do some locks. In the main, Barry steered and I also got to sit inside through two tunnels - yay!!
The following photos are courtesy of Barry - which accounts for their high quality!
|Preparing Saturday lunch - coleslaw with prawns in seafood sauce (tuna for David)|
|Ready for the England Australia game. Making sure we could not be mistaken for THOSE antipodeans|
|The view from the mooring|
|An arty shot with steam ...|
|The weather on Sunday morning was so warm that Barry and I were out sanding (B) and painting (M) in the sunshine|
|Wiping off residual dust before applying paint|
|Barry set up the camera on the stool after we'd done the painting so we could have some group shots|
|And the flag|
|Here we all are - both Barry and I changed from our painting clothes to look more respectable ...|
|And just the two of us|
|Moored at the top lock on Sunday afternoon - Barry went for a walk while Pauline and I finished off making lunch - chicken curry with naan bread and raita and rice|
