After a lovely few days spent with friendly neighbours near Mountain Bridge we pootled on along. When we got as far as Yelvertoft a boat was catching us up fast. The steerer was zig-zagging a bit because he had difficulty peering around the six large orange fenders along the sides of the roof. We slowed at Crick passing moored boats and looking for a place for us to moor and he nearly ran into the back of Oakfield. Anyway they pulled in front of us to moo and the boat was, Matilda Blue!
Whilst in Crick we enjoyed a roast lunch at The Red Lion again. To my delight they were still serving mulled wine, so as it was a chilly day I opted for one of these. We also had a day trip to Northampton where the stalls were set up in the market square, many of which were unoccupied, shame. Paddy and Ruth caught up with us for a day, before we headed off in opposite directions again.
