Buckby in Waiting.



Having topped up everything that needs topping up, and emptying everything that needs emptying aboard the boat, thoughts turn to food and liquid refreshment.








Ere, that's handy. Stop him and lets buy some.

I will say this again about this service, it is brilliant! he even arrived before our pre booked slot this time.






We are going to hang around this area for a few days now until the weekend has come and gone.
It is interesting moored here and watching an unusual flurry of activity at this BW yard. They seem to be amassing their troops for the stoppage season that is fast approaching.

Come Monday we should be on our way back through the Braunston Tunnel and to whatever lies beyond.




Until next time................................

Maybe that's where all the workmen have gone from lock 7 here! (No gates at the mo). They've been AWOL for the last week, & there I was thinking they were all on Facebook all day, or sittin on the portaloo's... LOL

Hi H,

There was a flurry for a day, but then, like ghosts, they vanished once more. Maybe back in your direction.


Regards Chris & Debbie.

Well they came back (here) last Monday to put new lock gates in, was great to watch them flying in mid air, blogged some photos cos I've never seen anything like it before. They came back the next morning to mess with something & have disappeared ever since (again). The job's not finished, maybe they're waiting another week for the paint to dry... lol
