Banbury to Thrupp

Two Days again
Monday 23 June 2008 Miles 4.8 Locks 3
We decided after both doing the shopping we wanted in Banbury to leave at about 3 in the afternoon. We filled up with water outside Woolworths and headed south for three locks and moored in the middle of no where.
Tuesday 24 June 2008 Miles 15.5 Locks 10
A full day today stopping at Aynho for diesel and a Loo pump-out and a long wait at Somerton deep lock which was enlivened by meeting Klaus and Helga (fellow NCCC members) in their boat SEBEQ returning from the River Thames. During the day we have crossed the River Cherwell twice on the level and at each crossing the lock off of the river is a funny shape. Todays pics show the crossing and lock at Aynho. We finally moored up at Thrupp on the 48hr mooring which surprised us as we expected them all to be full. After Tea we went for a walk and dropped in at the Jolly Sailor pub (For NCCC members it is very hard finding pups called “The Navigation”)…
