West Cornwall Pasty Company

We left our overnight mooring and made our way down the five Claydon locks. One pound was very low and several boaters warned us that lock twenty would be difficult to set someone ashore to do the gates. We heard of a lady that was in the water reattaching her rudder as it caught on the sill going into the lock. On this occasion, we didn't encounter any problems other than scrapping the bottom in a couple of places.

I took this just because I liked the colours.

We stopped in Banbury for supplies and a lunch of Cornish Pasties from West Cornwall Pasty Company. We have moved two miles south of Banbury and moored in a nice spot by bridge 172 although we can here the M40 it is not too obtrusive. Sue is fishing as I write this and is reeling them in one after the other.

Congratulations to Carol x
