Today we have cruised to Alrewas taking Craig on to new waters.
On our way we stopped off to catch up with Al who was moored a few miles from where we moored last night.

 As Craig took control and the weather improved it was time for a BBQ, we tried a chicken in the Cobb when Ray was aboard, so Saturday it was time to try the boned pork.
The whole evening was a great success.

 On Friday Ray left us and we were waiting for Craig to join us late in the evening so while we were waiting a trip to the pub beckoned.

 Yesterday our little baby was two years old.

 Ray has joined us Rugby and will be travelling to Fazely Junction, today we completed Atherstone Locks.

 Because we had ran out of data and Ray has joined us aboard this is the first chance to upate the blog.
Last Thursday Claire Darren and family joined us at Braunston and we had a great day

September 2009 we cruised under the wedding bridge which was built to get the wedding guests from their cars to the wedding reception over the canal.
Today we cruised under the same bridge, I hope the marriage is faring better than the bridge.
Also today we saw the ultimate dry dock and got held up at Napton Locks because of the number of boats leaving Cropredy.

 As the sunset on our stay in Cropredy it was an 7am start this morning as we have to take on water before we start the journey back to Braunston.

 Day Three at Cropredy started with a rock version of Morris dancing music to Marillion ending with Fairport Convention celebrating 50 years as a band.
