Back on familiar waters

Woke up to reasonable weather at Crofton and looking across the canal towards the pump house chimney they're stoking up ready for another day in steam.Left Crofton about 10.Oclock for a leisurely trip down to Bedwyn,met some lovely families on the way,really interested in what we were doing,also loads of school kids laden down with rucksacks and camping equipment all out for a survival weekend absolutely brilliant and they helped me with the locks, arrived in Bedwyn and got a mooring, bumped into g&t42,caught up on the laundry while Mark did some painting,I got very excited when having cast the crayfish net laden with chicken bones I reeled it in about an hour later and had a fair sized crayfish clinging to the outside of the net unfortunately not inside it, having said that I don't think I could have killed it. Mark fashioned an awning out of the cratch and we have been sitting in there drinking port and watching the rain and wildlife,just loving life on the canal x .....Lou
