Aynho Wharf

We drove up yesterday afternoon arriving about 3:30.

After unloading I replaced the alternator regulator that I scavenged from the old alternator, given to me by Middlewich Narrowboats, with a new one I had bought on ebay. I started the engine and checked the charging voltage, all seemed ok.

This morning started with a quick reverse over to the services for a pumpout, then we were on our way at 8:30. Quite a lot of boats about today. We have met one at almost every lock. At Banbury a quick stop to pop into M&S for a bit of food shopping, then off again.

The weather has been a bit odd, with periods of bright sun, followed by short rain storms. (April showers in July!).

The Red Arrowse entertained ¬†us with two fly pasts this afternoon, unfortunately we weren’t quick enough with camera.

This afternoon was spent watching the Wimbledon mens final on the ipad tethered to Heddi’s phone. Isn’t technology marvellous.

Now moored near Walker Services at Aynho. We need some deisel but they don’t open on Sundays, we’ll call in first thing in the morning.

I’ve been checking the charging voltage during the day, all seems ok with the new regulator.
