Nb Critical Point
Sunday morning, up, breakfasted, slobbing around in not-to-be-seen-attire, doing the blog etc. when we were rudely aroused from our peaceful state by the sound of a boat horn, a persistent boat horn. I looked at Joe, raised a eyebrow and said "Nb. Critical Point do you think?" and sure enough, there they were, edging into a mooring just in front of us. Linda and David on Nb Critical Point were joining NB Matilda Rose and NB Caxton for our trip to Chester and Ellesmere Port. We last travelled together almost exactly a year ago when they joined us on the Aylesbury Arm of the Grand Union canal. Coffee's and teas all round as we caught up with what had been going on since we saw them last.
That was Sunday but on Monday we pulled pins and slipped away northwards leaving Critical Point and Matilda Rose to head back into Market Drayton for an appointment with Doctor.
Looking down the flight and counting how many more I had to do.
