Old acquaintances

8 Locks, 6.5 Miles. Now moored at Harefield.
Last night when we moored up we saw a boat come up through the lock, watered up and then moored just below us. It wasn't until this morning when we moved down to the watering point and literarelly bumped into this other boat that we found that it was Hugh and Jane Muller (from Havelock North, New Zealand) on Narrowboat Poetry who we have crossed path's with before. They had been down on the Thames and had done the Limehouse basin to Brentford run and were now heading to Braunston. They only have a month left before they have to leave the country. The boat will be up for sale at Braunston Marina for any potential boat buyers.

We had a pleasant run down to Harefield today but there were a few more boats out and about making the most of the fine weather.

688 locks, 871.5 miles, 25 Tunnels, 39 swing bridges and 19 lift bridges since Nov 2006
