A chance meeting.....

We took Mum back to Northampton this morning, after her having spent Easter with us, and decided that we would go to the chandlery at Whilton Locks for a few bits and pieces. We parked the car and decided to have a walk up and down the locks first, and spotted a pair of familiar faces walking towards us. "Derwent6!" I cried. Not having met Al and Del before - they were a little surprised until we told them who we were, but we've seen so many photos of them on their blog they were instantly recognisable. Needless to say, we stood on the towpath, getting in everyone's way, and had a good old natter for about half an hour. It was lovely to meet them both, after having read their blog for so long, and we promised to go and see them again at Crick. It's great that you can meet up with people that you've never met before, and instantly feel that you have known them for ages, all because you've read their blog, and they've read yours. Long may it continue!! (Sorry, no photo as we didn't have the camera with us, but Del took one, so that may appear on their next blog post.)
