Northamptonshire Area organised a half day canal boat trip on Sunday 12th August 2018 from Grand Union Canal – Blisworth. The narrow boat accommodates 20 people and all spaces were taken up within a couple of days of announcing the trip.
The day started off at 10 am – it was a bit cooler then what we have been used to recently. There was light drizzle for parts of the morning but that did not deter fellow members from sitting on the deck and enjoying the peace, tranquillity and stunning views.
We played charades and memory games. Half way through the journey the boat disembarked near a lovely restaurant along the canal and we had a picnic lunch of Dhebra, bateta shaak, farfar, yogurt and loads of different homemade pickles.
The trip ended at around 3pm and some of the members went on and had a brisk walk around the canal ways. This was something very different from all the other events we have done and it proved to be a wonderful trip. All had a great day.
