Oh what a beautiful morning…  Such a change from the last couple of weeks.  We left Fenny Compton in blazing sunshine, and it wasn’t long before we were down to t-shirts.   The countryside was quiet and peaceful, lovely in the sunshine.  We passed through the first of many lift-bridges to be encountered on this journey.

SDC10552 Look at the cloudless blue sky!

Eight locks later we were at Cropredy, and for once there was plenty of mooring space.  We love Cropredy, and went for a saunter around the village, taking lots of photos.



The Red Lion pub where we had a lovely meal last night to celebrate Rog’s birthday, also taking part in the pub quiz – we didn’t win, but we didn’t come last either!

SDC10567 When we got back from our walk, it was tea and birthday cake (with candles!)

This morning we left Cropredy to travel a little way along towards Banbury, which we will probably visit tomorrow – but then, if it’s a lovely day again we may just stay where we are and enjoy the sunshine.
