First day on the Canals for our visitors

Anne & Graham had never been on a canal before so we hoped for a nice sunny day to show off the beauty of the Oxford rained!!!!!!  Unbelieveable after all the sun we have had..........however there were some clear periods so mustn't complain too much..

The goal was Aynho Wharf as we had booked a table there for supper at the Great Western Arms
What a great idea for a rainy day!!

We had the impression we were impeding their progress....
explaining the intricacies of lock operation

We enjoyed a good meal in the Great Western Arms.  Luckily we had booked as it was extremely busy.

Total distance:6.77 miles
 Elapsed time:4h17m17s 
Average speed:1.58 mph (2.75 lock/mph)
