We beat the rain today, although it was a rather dank run down to Braunston with a fairish wind blowing.  
En Route we passed this which we think may have been where there was a breach earlier this year.

We also passed this sunken boat which I am sure was here several months ago when we set out in April, one wonders why it can't be removed??
If you look closely at the above picture you will see we have a boat in front of us.   He appeared seemingly from nowhere and to say he is going slowly is an understatement.............there slow and slow........
Having moored up the first stop was A J Canopies.  Both our cratch cover and pram hood require some minor repairs so all off and we trundled them down to their workshop.   We then walked up to the Admiral Nelson for a lunch time pint (well 1/2 pint for me...) and did some gongoozling on the way.  The first spots of rain came when we were just back at Petroc so it was snuggle in for an afternoon with books and crossword.
Petroc looks very bare and vulnerable without her covers either end.   It also makes life much more difficult when you have to don or divest oneself of wet weather clothes to take Barney for a walk in the pouring rain.
