Stopped at the "Bridge Store' for a few provisions.Moore to Life was woken up on arrival at the marina. We unpacked the car and put the kettle on for a refreshing cuppa. We were too tired to consider moving out that day and resolved to get away the next day.
We moved out as planned and headed south. Another problem was that Slat Mill lock was to be closed for inspection so we needed to get past that. The moorings through Cropredy were already occupied by boats ready for the 'music festival' due in August! It was almost single file due to the considerable over growth. What ever happened to the 'Veg Pledge'?
Then we just had to stop because NB Derwent 6 was spotted ahead. Del and Al came on board for a drink and chat. Then it started to rain! Must get going with wet gear on to pass that lock. But first a quick snack!
Got all the way to Banbury as the rain cleared and we walked round Spiceball park.
