Came onto the Oxford canal at Hawkesbury Jct also known to the old working boatmen as Sutton stop because of a Mr Sutton who collected the tolls at this jct.
Andy/Tina had Sandra aboard for a few days, the cakes (homemade) were lovely Sandra, thankyou. I had a visit from a friend on a beautiful sunny day that made it all the more enjoyable.
Chas/Ann on board Moore2life cruised by with Ann walking the gunnels tending her roof garden.
Had to help my son Kevin move house so a couple of days away from the boat and a trip down the M1 and back made me appreciate the slow and quiet life i lead, 60mph in a truck is frightening after 4mph on the boat. At least i didn`t have to drive this time as Kev has just passed his HGV test, well done son, and well done to his partner Joanne who passed her test in a car last week.
So returning to the boat after humping furniture i found a card to say that Dot/Derek on their boat Gypsy Rover were moored just a couple of boats back from me so i invited them aboard for a coffee and a natter. A nicer pair of kiwi s i have yet to meet.
I think in the last month i have met up with 4 fellow bloggers, 2 i hadn`t seen for a year, 1 for 6 mths and the other not at all. One day we will meet again and to you all i wish good health and happy cruising.
At the moment we are all gonna head down the Sth. Oxford canal probably as far as Banbury and then who knows, heh this is freedom.
