Weekend in Braunston

In all the times we have been to Braunston we have never set foot on the Gongoozlers Rest but we made up for it this time.

Saturday is the day I normally cook a fullish English but this week we let the Gongoozlers cafe do the work  and it was well worth it.   We both ordered the large breakfast and only towards the end of eating it did we realise there was an even larger one called the Gongoozlers Breakfast.     So the decision was taken to stay over a day and not head for the country as we were on a 48 hour mooring. 
We both managed the gargantuan plateful on Sunday morning,although I saved my black pudding to take home for Barney!   

Afterwards we walked up to Braunston Church and joined them for their Family Service.   The vicar had a problem with her microphone so I struggled to hear what she was saying.   Either my hearing is getting worse or could it be that people now longer enunciate properly??

We declined the offer of coffee and cake (still full) as we wanted to move out today instead of tomorrow.  The forecast for Monday is dire so we thought we would get settled in a quiet spot and sit it out.    

I turned Petroc at the marina entrance whilst Geoff went to empty the rubbish

We seem to generate an inordinate amount of rubbish, a lot of which is all the food wrappings that are used nowadays.

We are moored a couple of miles out from Baunston and there are a couple of other boats here now but what has been so surprising is the number of boats who have gone past,  in both directions.   More traffic than we have seen all summer........

Total distance:1.92 miles 
Elapsed time:0h54m39s 
Average speed:2.11 mph (2.11 lock/mph)
