Yesterday was down to Thrupp for an excellent meal in The Boat then neck to moor not far from last night’s mooring.

Today a chug back to the marina in chilly and damp conditions.

When we got to Banbury there were hundreds (no exaggeration ) of canoeists. They were mostly young teenagers, obviously involved in some event. Some had their pushy, loud mouthed parents with them who thought that we had no business being on the canal. Some of the stewards were helpful, but some weren’t. The kids didn’t understand that we could easily crush them if they got between us and the concrete sides.
