Watford Gap to Foxton Locks (22 miles and 7 locks)

Not exactly boating weather this last week, I think everyone will agree!

However, our sights have been set on travelling to our next festival location for the weekend before, to enable us to collect deliveries of stock and nip into town to do errands on the reasonably priced bus!

Love the countryside around here

Crick tunnel

We moored overnight at Crick and had some time to catch up with cleaning and sprucing the motor boat for valuation...
  The next phase of our business progression will hopefully include selling diesel and coal from a motor.  
We have had 2 valuations on the motor, waiting for a third and so far have been pleasantly surprised with them so far.
Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be another more appropriate motor boat out there to suit our needs.....?

Yelvertoft Wharf where for once, we didn't meet another boat!


Round the bend at Welford Junction after an afternoon stop on the straight stretch with the Cheese Boat

After getting drenched, we moored about an hour away from Foxton and completed the journey on Friday morning.

So here we are, please come and see us over the next week or so, especially the festival weekend as there is a lot going on.

And maybe we will have taken the next step on our venture by the time I post again.....
