Delayed start from Foxes Gate

We moved out of Braunston late on Monday after the welding on Caxton and moored up at Foxes Gate. Here there is plenty of room and Joe could finish the gas locker with filler and paint.  We had planned to move off towards Long Itchington at 09.00 on Thursday but when Joe took the dogs out first thing we found the Gosty Hill, the fuel boat, had moored up behind us.. too good a opportunity to waste of course so we delayed our start and had Ian fuel Caxton and Matilda Rose as well as buying 10 bags of coal for each boat.

below, Ian and Joe putting world to rights...

And we are last.
