We met a blogging legend….

Further to my post yesterday, blogging legend Andrew Denny of nb Granny Buttons came and met up with us in The Green Dragon, and helped us with the pub quiz.  Our team didn’t win, but we scored a lot higher than we might have done, due to Andrew’s input.  Unfortunately, there won’t be any photos of us in Canal Boat mag, as they needed sunny ones with leaves on trees, suitable for the May edition.  No sun this morning, and certainly no leaves on the trees yet, although we did see evidence of pussy willow buds and catkins this morning as we made our way through Burton to Branston, where we are moored beside the water park, awaiting visitors to Serenity tomorrow.  It was lovely to meet you at last Andrew, and we hope to meet up again at some point in the future.

We became separated from Serenity at Dallow Lane Lock in Burton, and when we caught up half an hour later at Branston Lock, we found Karen and Ian waiting with the lock all ready for us. Ahh, how kind  - I could get used to service like that!   Below is photographic evidence that Karen does actually know how to work a lock, although Ian says she needs a bit more practice.  Dream on Ian, and don’t hold your breath!!!!

  2. Hi,

    I am in the procees of looking for a boat, and it looks like I will have to get one built as the spec I am looking for is not readilly available. Looking through builders I came to your boat, which is near enough the spec I have been looking for. How do I PM you to ask about the expecrience of your builder and the boat now you have had it on the water a few months now.

    Many thanks,
