Was it Bill or was it Ben?

We had the honour, on two occasions, of having visiting dignitaries aboard 'MR'. Dot and Derek of the well known Gypsy Rover. They were both getting stir crazy and needed a Narrowboat fix. Just look at the smiles.
Here's Dot taking 'MR' into Whittlesey lock, it wasn't until after she creamed it into the lock that she told me how worried she was, she did have to contend with strong winds and a strong side stream. Bravo Dot.
I can't remember, but I think Little Weed lost this pair somewhere in Whittlesey.

Still huge smiles, but it was a very strange feeling watching 'MR' depart the Lock upstream without either Jill or myself aboard!

and Tina (the Lockie at Standgound) with HER cat George.
Thank you Dot and Derek, it was nice to sit back and be driven (not mad!) for a couple of days.
