Another brick in the wall near Braunston

Monday, 29 July 2013

We went up to the boat last week to enjoy some of this lovely weather and do a few jobs that I didn't manage to do when we were out. We did our usual journey which now involved going up the three Calcutt locks and then a cruise through the countryside towards Braunston. As it was so hot we stopped just past bridge 103 for the day with a BBQ in the evening. Thursday started a lot cooler as we cruised into Braunston for a few things which included a trip to the butchers in the village for some of their great lamb chops.
Just outside Braunston is the remains of an old railway bridge that used to be home to a narrowboat when we first had the boat. Not sure if he was a fan of the group but the track from their 1979 album The Wall- Another brick in the wall- would be very appropriate.

This young swan would insist on tapping on the boat by the side hatch for food

We managed to miss the majority of the rain last week except for a shower that came along just as I was finishing off the lamb chops- ah the English BBQ 

I am getting hooked on peoples boat names

They can be very imaginative
