About our boat

We acquired our Narrowboat in January 2010 and are looking forward to many cruises around the network.

Day 3: Norton Jct to Bridge 26

We started quite early for us, up by 7.30 and set off by 9.15 with all jobs done so we can both be up on deck. Norton Junction is very pretty and easy to navigate which set the tone for the rural meander to Watford Locks.  Having negotiated the locks as directed by the lock-keeper we continued on to Crick tunnel. Once through we stopped and decided to walk into Crick village.  Here we found the chap in the P.O. most welcoming.  Set off again about 4.15 to stop at Yelvertoft for water.  We then carried on passing the new marina and continued to just before bridge 26. Again good pilings and good TV reception. Shared the mooring with Nb.Moon Shadow.  The couple from the boat pointed out hares in the field opposite.  We thought we were taking our time but they were cruising even more slowly than us.  First rain of trip started at 9.00pm. OK because we were all tucked up indoors.                                         Tuesday 3rd August.
