With only a short distance to go this morning, we didn’t hurry to set off, finally letting go at about 9. Crick Tunnel was as usual dry at the southern end and a bit drippy at the northern end. We found our booked mooring, quite close to the first bridge; we were one of the first to arrive along this stretch. Our neighbouring boat arrived an hour or so later, and moored on the inside of us as they have a dog.
In mid morning we walked up into the village so Adrian could get a bus into Rugby and then a train to London, as he’s going to a black tie awards dinner this evening. I walked back along the towpath and bumped into some of the Braidbar bunch, and then went over to the show site. This afternoon I’ve been helping Pete set up the Canal Boat stand. This evening, I’m going to The Moorings for dinner with the Braidbar crew.
