This morning it was just the two of us. Sarah took the helm as we left Buckby locks behind us and headed for Braunston tunnel.
We only passed one boat inside, and just before the end too! The Braunston flight then awaited us. We started off on our own, but soon caught up with a lovely gentleman going through single-handed, so we paired up with him for the rest of the flight. With plenty of other boats going up and down there was no shortage of people about.
We turned right onto the North Oxford canal after the locks, and into more beautiful and peaceful countryside. We had a brief interlude to remove some plastic sheeting that had got caught up by the prop…
… and kept a close eye on what was going on around us.
We found a nice peaceful mooring in the countryside for the night.
Sarah made some smoked mackerel pate ready for tomorrow’s lunch
We phoned Meriel to wish her happy birthday, the cake sounded fab. Showers, log book and then probably bed before it’s even dark.
