Friday 30 July 2010

When we woke this morning we had cows for neighbours, I don't know when they arrived.

We timed our departure well, about 15 minets after another boat left so that when we arrived at Heyford Common Lock the boat in front had just left and as we turned the lock two boats pulled in behind us. Stopping for water at Upper Heyford we saw Maffi had at work polishing the boats ready to go out.

Pigeons look is now very quiet with all the long term moorers having departed.

We had planned to moor just below Bakers Lock on the River Cherwell,a spot that I have always wanted to stop at, but I received a message from Bones saying that Kate saffin had a performance of "Now is the Winter" on this evening at Shipton Church se we decided to carry on to Shipton to moor, but no room, so we carried on to Thrupp, no room, on to the Jolly Sailor and still no room,so we backed up into a space where a long term moorer is out and pulled in there. When I have posted this I will walk back to the club and check its OK, if not,no Kate tonight.
