|Autumn making itself felt in the trees|
Despite setting off so early we had two boats ahead of us so quite a slow morning. Still we were lucky as there were at least 4 behind us. We haven't seen the canals so busy all summer.
Geoff had a desire to carry on past Cropredy but luckily the rain persuaded him otherwise. We reached there about midday so there were 2 or 3 spaces to choose from. By the time we moored the rain was heavy and we were glad to be inside. A steady stream of boats has gone past us this afternoon.
