Llangollen here we come Day 2

Sunday, 15 April 2018

Two final things to sort out before we started on our trip to the Llangollen and they were-

Our pre trip into the butchers  at Braunston for his great meat,pork pies and sausages - no trip would be complete without something of his in the freezer.
Change the  domestic water  supply pump which had decided to spring a leak.

It's now day two and we have moored up on the armco below Hillmorton locks. It's now raining hard the fire is alight and the tv is set up. What a change from yesterday afternoon when we left the marina in t shirts and a lovely warm spring afternoon. Its the joys of boating and only another 81 locks and 166 miles to go!!

 Spring is here and the lamb was enjoying the warm spring sunshine.

The spring dafs make Braunston Turn junction look so lovely

The tug Zulu awaiting to tow it's butty out of the Hillmorton bottom lock

Another tug this time a Stewart's & Lloyds
I am on the hunt for original boat names again
