....and a bit further down the Oxford.

We did not move far yesterday, but we did move ourselves back a little.  We were under delightfully shady trees but the forecast was giving heavy rain and thunderstorms so we decide to be prudent......

Geoff and Barney walked 5 miles in total just to get a Saturday Daily Telegraph!!!

Today we moved on down through Fenny Compton and through 4 of the 5 Claydon Locks and moored just above the bottom lock..   Very gentle day and moored in time for coffee.......mind you we did set out at the crack of sparrows.    Once again we sought the shade.   Later in the afternoon Bones came past and we went a little way up the locks with her but sadly did not manage to meet up later for a drink and catch up.

Boe also arrived for a couple of nights, she even managed to find the little road down to the canal with the aid of a friendly local.   So our tidy ship is no longer!!!!!  However it is great to see her, she came fresh from a friends hen night where the entertainment had been a life drawing class with a male model.....I dare not put the pictures up!!!

Total distance:6.65 miles 
Elapsed time:3h56m49s 
Average speed:1.68 mph (2.70 lock/mph)
