What a com­mu­nity

Canal Boat - - Letters -

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.
