Not such an early start this morning, we were off at 9am and passed The Milly M moored further up the canal, we started to make our way up the Braunston locks when Maffi and Molly arrived to help us.
|At Brauston top lock - thank you for your help Maffi|
We said our goodbyes at the top and no doubt he will pass us in a month or so as he heads south. Next came Braunston tunnel and we were soon at Norton junction where we carried on and down the Buckby flight. I still can't believe there's only seven locks in this flight, they are so tough going and again we were following a boat down so they were all against us.
We made it to the bottom and moored up opposite Whilton Marina where it all started for us five years ago.
|A fat boat stopped in front for a quick break|
6 miles and 13 locks
TOTAL 51.5 miles and 78 locks
