Not a very exciting day today. But we caught up with some of the news.
We went for a walk. Life on the towpath is recovering from the festive season and there were quite a few of the moorers out and about today. NBWilly Nilly went by with guest crew on a water run while the weather is fine. The crew of NB Athco were relaxing on a bench in the park and the skipper of NB Nene Pilot was walking his dog and surfing the net at the same time. It was good to chat with folks, not just to wish them a "Happy New Year" but to keep up with the towpath telegraph. Not the published free paper but the genuine news of real boaters with real lives and a love for the waterways.
It was good to be out in the fresh air on a dry day. The Best Mate could tell it had been raining a lot recently: there was only half a carrier bag full of litter to pick up in the park!
