Wormleighton to Napton

We set off fairly early this morning after nb Tranquility and nb Piston Broke had left. It was a lovely warm morning ideal for cruising along gazing at the sheep, lambs and cows grazing in the fields. As we neared Napton we saw a large herd of Water Buffalo too. We passed Piston Broke while they were filling with water at Marston Doles and caught up with Tranquillity at the top of the Napton flight. We are now moored up all together below the bottom lock. We spent the afternoon lolling on the bank chatting and later cracked open the wine and beer. Lynne, Betty and I walked to the PO Stores for a few essentials. The Folly Inn opens at 6pm, so I walked along to look at the menu to see if we would all like to eat an evening meal there as we females were quite tired after doing eight locks. The kitchen staff were away ill so no food at the Inn tonight unfortunately! We have seen Buzzards circling, a Kestrel hovering, Green Woodpeckers and Rabbits since we moored up. I wonder if our three boats might be magnetically attracted to each other in some way!
