What a community
On returning from our cruise to and from Rickmansworth last night, my husband was very interested to find an article in August’s Canal Boat about the Old Bedford as he had been talking to someone about it while we locked up with them.
He was even more delighted to find it was actually about the same trip the person we had been travelling with, Jeff Walters on Ever After.
It seems however that this was not the only person of note we met from last month’s edition as starting the day after we travelled with Ever After, we spent two days travelling with the ‘two canal veterans’ encountered by Rob Lyon ( Letters). These redoubtable ladies were inspirational to our crew who didn’t dare admit to being tired before them (most of us being somewhat younger). What an inspiration they both are and we were very proud to receive a salute from them as we left them at Rickmansworth. I only hope that I can follow their example in the future.
