On the Move

Wednesday:- Moved out of the marina and moored about 2 miles down the Oxford canal.
Haven't shaved since I retired.
Taking on water.
Sue's on pints I'm on half's



There wasn't any phone or data signal so I was unable to update the blog but we were nearer the Pub so we had our tea there. I was looking forward to the faggots but they weren't on the menu this night so Cajun chicken for me and Chili and rice for Sue.


Thursday: We were up early to super sunshine so after breakfast we made our quiet meandering way through the beautiful Warwickshire countryside and stopped for lunch close to  Priors Hardwick.

Sue traversing one of the nine Napton Locks
 These locks are so narrow there isn't enough room to have our fenders down.
 Moored for lunch
We are in the middle of nowhere here,there aren't any humans for miles around



Views over the hedge

Looking back the way we came

  as the day was so nice afterwards we pushed on to  Fenny Compton.



Inquisitive youngster


We are now moored for the night  close to The wharf Inn. At this pub as well as the usual food and drink ladies can get their nails done, have a hair cut and men can have a hot towel shave and they do the laundry also, that's diversification at work. Oh and they have a man creche from 9am to 11pm !
After a quick drink The Old Speckled Hen we walked to the co-op in the village for some supplies  Sue has cooked us scrumptous chicken and rice for our tea.

We travelled about 10 miles on the canal today or 5 as the crow flies.
