Drifting to Calcutt

Moved just for a change of scenery. Met NB 'Snecklifter' as we turned a corner so stopped for a chat with Mike & Liz. Not seen them since this time two years ago. We knew they were near because we occasionally read their blog. Then continued on to Calcutt locks. A space for us among the other boats. Best to get here early due to its popularity. Not a place for peace and tranquillity but good for watching boats on the move.

On a sunny day we both walked down past the locks. Watching several boats going up and down one at a time through these double locks. Such is the independent attitude of summer boaters. Carried on walking along this recently cut tow path. There are several marinas here and two of them below the locks have expanded and are already filling with boats.

Then we saw NB 'Liberty Belle'. Angela was about to write her blog after being away for a while.
