We are heading north now over the summit stopping by that mast near Griffins Bridge. Next day the sun shine helped to make for a leisurely cruise across and down the Napton flight. Almost every pound had two boats coming up, it was so busy. It was still only one boat at a time in each lock so ‘taking’ a lock from boats coming down did not save them any time. The back pumps must have been working hard because despite the amount of traffic there was plenty of water to get those boats up while we came down.
We stopped for a while before Nimrod Bridge and our friends Terry and Myra came to visit by car having seen Mike and Jo on Sarah Kate at Banbury. Mo and Vanessa on Balmaha were there as well and they are all heading this way.
