Warwickshire Plains

The sun was being a tease, hiding behind clouds but popping out to faintly warm FL's steel and crew as we made another early morning start, destination Napton. There is a 7-mile lock-free pound before the first of the nine lock's that would lower us down to Napton. On the way down the Napton flight you pass the grazing water buffalo, seeing them here in the Warwickshire countryside instead of the African plains is always gives us pleasure, especially when Sue got to close to one and it charged, luckily he couldn't jump the wall.

Napton was too busy to stop so we have pressed on to bridge 102 where I sat on the bank drinking tea while watching the farmer opposite gather in the hay.
