Dawn at Abingdon. We left at 0545 and did all the locks by ourselves (2 with electric and 2 without). A quick trip into Oxford looking for a pub showing the football but came back to the boat disappointed.

The moorings at Oxford are still a disgrace and BW had closed off the towpath so getting into the town was made difficult with a detour. So we upped sticks and moved off to one of our favourite spots just above Kidlington Green Lock.

Sunday we moved on through the showers, Thrupp was packed and we continued on and then today it was raining. We set off in the rain and stopped after a couple of hours. Then at about 1100 the rain stopped and the weather was really muggy. We decided to press on and stopped just past Aynho.
See the BW boat on the lock landing at Somerton Deep Lock!!! And on a bank holiday when the canal is really busy.

Another card in my Canal series. A picture of a day boat at Skipton. I matted the photo onto red card and then a white shaped card (done on my Craft Robo). I then matted this onto a larger piece of blue card and red card and tied a red and white polka dot ribbon around it. Then I fixed it to the white base card.
