Cropredy

We had a bit of a lie in today, till 7am ;)  then straight on to the water point, 
a beautiful sunny, still morning.

 nice iron 'turn over' ( where the tow path changes sides) bridge 

 It's been a while since we saw a lift bridge, the last time was on the Llangollen last autumn. 
This one is usually open so no effort needed this time.

 Gosty Hill's home mooring, closed but we're not in need of any fuel

 Claydon Top Lock, the 1st of the day, only 7 more to go

We passed quite a few boats coming up the locks so after the 1st couple they were all set for us.
As we approached Cropredy the sky was clouding up & it was getting quite windy.
 We've found a spot on the 14 day moorings north of the village, the edge is soft & crumbly with chunks of tree root sticking out in the wrong place, Mark's had a go with the saw already & our life ring has doubled up as an extra fender but it's all in a good cause.... it's a decent satellite signal for the Grand Prix this weekend!  
The fire has just nicely been lit as we were decidedly chilly so of course the sun has come out again.....
 wide beam cat....
