We pulled pins at 9am and worked the two boats through Denford lock and then JIll and I and dogs scurried off to retrieve Jill and Graham's car and hurry to Thrapston to meet the two boats and assist them to get on to the water point - a tricky little site to access. Both boats went through the bridge and winded (turned), coming back through the bridge against the stream and reversed on to the water point. (easier to manage the speed of the boat and therefore the manoeuvrability going up stream). We filled water tanks and ran washing machines and showers before moving off again to drop down through the next lock and moor by the sailing club.
On the water point by the seven arched Islip/Thrapston bridge.
Moored up by the yacht club on Islip moorings
The lake adjacent to our moorings
It has been a lovely day with bright sunshine - until we took the dogs for a walk around the lake. At this point God decided to rearrange his furniture and we had a dose of thunder and lightening and the wet stuff. Well it is April...
