Banbury to Cropredy

Another beautiful day to be cruising with plenty of other boats on the move also. Oakfield had got extremely dusty so I managed to wash down one side while we were in Banbury and have just finished doing the other side here in Cropredy on the 24 hour moorings. I wondered if it was volcanic ash that had drifted over from Iceland as it stuck to the boat quite well. The gardens are beautifully kept around here and I am eyeing up all the rhubarb that is growing in them. I miss pulling fresh rhubarb from our garden and having it stewed along with a good dollop custard. It tickles me to see garden ponds with fountains with plastic water birds alongside the masses of water that is in the canal with real ducks.

We have moored up for the weekend now. Paul is exhausted after doing 4 hours yesterday so today we did 2. How did you guess about the beer it is under lock and key now just in case you catch us up I have to stop him drinking it all.
