Well, what can we say about Crick that hasnt already been said! Weather was fab, crowds of people, lots of money spent – and I dont just mean on beer and food!!
We bumped into Nick Thorpe and his wife Wendy, who built our shell and had a good natter to them. We have promised to drop by with Muleless when we start to cruise, so that they can admire her fully!
We also bumped into Paul, Elaine, Bombo and Sam from Caxton – sorry guys, we forgot to take a picture! It was great chatting and we look forward to meeting you out on the cut for a proper get together!
Also, we were spotted by our old neighbours and friends Jane and Malcolm – who were introduced to narrowboating by us when we took them for a weeks holiday out of Milton Keynes (on the dreaded Canaltime boat) a few years back, and now they own their own 40ft narrowboat and are enjoying themselves on it.
The only down side of the weekend was not being able to see our own boat – apart from the pictures in MGM’s tent – really frustrating, so we had to go up to Leicester on friday to catch up with Muleless.
The window liners are now in and looking fabulous, the oak floor has been laid in the saloon, dinette and galley, but has been covered with blue cling film to protect it for the time being.
The doors and hatches have been lined.
Our galley appliances have been fitted and are awaiting doors.
Bathroom cabinets have been built.
Phew! Also, the stove has been delivered but not fitted yet.
Back to the boat next weekend – cant wait!!
