Alvecote and back

With a long daily commute through the week we only had one brief trip for some maintenance in September before our week in October.  Familiar ground, but very pretty and good to get away.

 ...and only one misadventure to report.  Returning to the boat in Braunston after lunch, the lock on the boat door would not open.  Fortunately we had forgotten to secure another hatch, so could get back in without breaking anything.  It turned out that the snib had snapped off the the face of the latch, and a component inside the lock had dropped to deadlock it.
