Then it was Heathers turn to have her panic moment when she met a narrowboat on a bend. I tell you, one has to keep their wits about them on this section of river!
Canoeist were also a problem and meeting on the bends doesn't do ones heart rate any good especially when they don't know which side of the river they are supposed to be on.
We made it to Bablock Hythe by around 4ish, not a good time to try and find a mooring. There was a space near the Ferryman near to two boats already breasted up. So we winded and Dave went in first. Help was at hand to pull Vixen into the side and before long we had secured FS next to Vixen. Chatting away to the other boaters we found out that one of them was Festina Lente also a blogger. Small world isn't it. We were also told that Morris dancers will be performing in the pub tonight so we may just have to go and support them.
