Back out! Monday 4th July

After a week in the marina, a lovely weekend with Ali's family, we left Yelvertoft on Monday morning, returning back down through Crick, Watford Locks to Norton Junction.  We turned up the Grand Union heading for Braunston, new territory for us.  Braunston Tunnel 2042 yards, with a few twists, followed by the 7 locks, there were a few boats coming up, but unfortunately no-one going down.  An ice cream was in order half way down the locks as it was rather warm.  There were absolutely no moorings left in Braunston so we turned up the Oxford Canal and moored just out of Braunston, amongst the wildlife!

Still a good selection of working boats in Braunston
