Grand Union

The end of May we had a break on our Narrowboat on the Grand Union Canal in Northhamptonshire, starting from Gayton Junction the wife spent a couple of days with the Grand daughter through Blisworth Tunnel to Stoke Bruerne and back to Gayton. I joined on the Monday after the Duxford Show, we then cruised up the Buckby Flight, and through the Watford Staircase Locks towards Market Harborough, then back to Gayton. Only 1 bad weather day with showers on and off, the rest of the time was quite warm.

Me doing all the hard work!

Near miss with a Virgin Pendalino!
Was great to get away from all the doom and gloom of the reccesion and work for a week, purposely did not use the TV/mobile or laptop to cut of the outside world which is easy to do on the canals. Bit shocked to hear of the La Carrerra cancelation, though hope to be on the informal run.
