It started off a bit cold, but now (16:15) it’s 26°C in the shade.
Only three locks today. The flight at Hillmorton is paired and there were several boats coming down, but only us going up. So at each of the three locks we went straight in.
We arrived at Braunston at about one thirty, had some lunch then went for a stroll. A quick mooch in Midland Chandlers, a pop to the village stores for some milk then back to the boat.
Over the last two days we have had six sightings of water voles. They must be doing well on the North Oxford. Unfortunately they were too quick for anything but a blurry picture.
