|A hint of red with sunrise|
Today we made for Penkridge. The leaf situation had improved considerably and we only had a few occasions to clear the prop. With the sun causing the temperature to rise the cruise turned out to be very pleasant indeed. You would never think it was 31st October, Halloween, and tomorrow the start of November.
So without much to blog about this is more of a photo blog, although not long after mooring in Penkridge a familiar boat came past. It was Maffi and Molly on Milly M. I rushed out to say hello and I'm sure Maffi wondered who this women was. After all without me being on FS not many people would take a second glance at a strange women on a hire boat! Ian helped Maffi up Filance lock and we stood and had a bit of a catch-up. Having waved goodbye, within 30 minutes a knock on the boat and Maffi and Molly were stood outside. So kettle on, my dog fix with Molly and putting the worlds to right as only Maffi can.
