Curly’s visit

We had our BSS on Monday and the Gearbox oil cooler fitted on Tuesday and then on Wednesday daughter Chloe and number one Granddaughter Curly (Abbie) were coming to visit. Justin Green of JG marine kindly allowed us to stay on the wharf until Saturday.

We had a walk around Braunston marina and came across nb Raymond and nb Nutfield. They are both very old boats and Curly was very impressed with them and we looked them up on the internet and we found out that you can join the friends of Raymond.

                                                                           It was then back to Inca and the building of a Lego boat.

On Saturday morning Chloe and Curly headed back down to Devon. We reversed Inca back to the Braunston marina entry where we winded (turned) and headed towards the South Oxford Canal. We intend to make our way down to Banbury. We have not been on the South Oxford canal so it will be all new to us. There is something really exciting about not knowing what's around the next corner.

                                                Happy Days
