We're now moored up between Bridge 78 & 79 on the north Oxford Canal. We set out from Nellie pound on the Braunston flight late morning. After the last three locks, our first stop was The Stop House where Pete did a tiny bit of work (even though on holiday). We then cruised nearly a mile (!) and moored up at Midland Chandlery. Two firsts then; mooring up in the Braunston flight which was Josie friendly and quiet, and moored up at the Chandlery. Pete shopped for wires and fittings and Elizabeth walked up to the Braunston shops.
We set out again and headed north through our old cruising territory. We were greeted at Hillmorton Wharf with a "are you coming back?!' to which we replied, no, we were only there to collect LPG gas which was ordered for us when we home-moored there. Much good humour and welcome greeted us, yet it was a pleasure to pull out again and head back south.
The day was mostly typified by sun whilst moored and rain whilst cruising. Harumph! But it was a good day, even though we've exhausted the pooch... Here's our Josie, warming her nose.
