Another night out with Keith and Ann off Nb Oakfield at The Boathouse in Braunston. The night was supposed to be a Mexican night ,but it ended up being a very un-Mexican night. Anyway we ended up having a very enjoyable evening.
The joys of life afloat . On Inca we only have a 3.5kg load washing machine and a 3.5kg load dryer .So when we are close to a launderette like the one here at Braunston marina we take advantage of it and get all the large items washed.
Plonkers work boats came speeding down through the ice on the moorings and after nearly hitting Nb Oakfield they hit the boat behind them. Its not easy steering through ice , but when you have a square bow its near impossible as these 2 showed.
And then came along this this guy in a plastic boat going through ice , although the ice had been broken there were still some very large and sharp pieces and with only having a plastic hull its so easy for it to get holed. A very brave or foolhardy man.
There is still no chance of us moving even though a lot of the ice around us has melted . We walked up to Braunston junction and the canal is still frozen solid South towards Oxford in the direction we are heading. It has to be at least 2 inches thick in places , so there is no chance of us getting through that for the time being. Oh well the pub beckons again ….Cheers !
