It’s lovely to moor out in the countryside as when we roll out of bed in the morning we can watch the sunrise. There was a frost overnight leaving a cold chill in the air when we set off down the eight locks to Cropredy. We caught up with another boat which was so slow we caught up and helped them through the locks.
The new marina with three hundred berths was almost full as we passed the two entrances. We moored up just beyond the narrows which is a bit tight when boats are coming at it from both directions.
