As we take Intrepid to have the bottom blacked we encounter dust storms as the soil is eroded from the parched fields.

Rita showing the British (Canadian) spirit and be damned we will have a bbq.

Before we handed the boat over to Mavis and John we managed to have our first BBQ of the year with Rita and Scooby.

The next day we moved on to Braunston and Hilary cruised her first tunnel.

We met Rita and Scooby for a couple of games nights before moving off to prepare for Mavis and John who are taking the boat for a few days.

Ray cruised us through the locks and we moored at Norton Junction where we finished the day in the New Inn with a meal and a drink.

Elaine took us from Weedon to Buckby locks passing the unfortunate sight of a burnt out canal boat.

We have started this summers cruise with the help of Ray,Craig, Elaine and Sacha
