Should We Go or Should We Stay

Friday was a quiet day, as it was a nice day, weather wise, we lit the fire.
Not as silly as it sounds, the multi fuel stove is new and as many of you will know the burning off of the 'newness' smell is something terrible.
We had doors and windows open, the only fuel in it was from the initial set-up and it lasted for ages, the boat was warm into the late evening.
So it was a success all round.

In the late afternoon we had a walk to Hampton Gay, all that is there is the church and the ruined manor house, the views are
wonderful.
It is one of those places that is very atmospheric, to stand and wonder at the events that had taken place there in the past was eerie.























Should we stay or should we go was decided to be, after coffee at Annies Tea Room with Maffi, Bones and Mark, stay as the wind is strong and rain is in the air.
That is one of the joys of being live aboard, you do not have to keep to a schedule as with hiring, three hire boats have passed us this morning all fighting the wind because they have to get back to the hire base.

Which way are you going. NB.Gosty Hill is somewhere to the north of you and he sells diesel for heating at the low rate of duty.

Hi Brian, Diana
Yes, thank you, to give Lower Heyford some credit they did point us in the direction of Gosty Hill.
