Into Braunston for supplies, mooching and another pub lunch. There's a couple of examples of this graffiti (graffito??) dotted around the footpaths and towpaths at Braunston, which I rather like...
Then back on through lovely low sun and a glass-calm return to the marina, thank heavens.

...now this is more like it. Amazingly beautiful day, and lots and lots of fruitless attempts to capture how lovely the scenery looks in the low winter sunshine. Plus Sunday lunch in the (thankfully now re-opened) Admiral Nelson. What's not to like?

Okay, so they aren't six-foot breakers. But they are the result of 35mph winds, and even here in the marina the water is distinctly choppy. nbCaracol has all of the aerodynamic elegance of a Gloucester Old Spot so we've decided to call off our plans to cruise today. We drove over to Hatton to look at the lock maintenance work instead.
