So onward through Hawkesbury Jct. stop lock and the Coventry canal leads onto the Oxford canal and takes me evermore towards London. Rounding a bend the Elephant & Castle pub, ok
so i know i`m pretty laid back and lose all track of time but surely i can`t be in London already.
No all is ok through the bridge and open fields so it must be another Elephant & Castle.

Just a bit further on what looks like a gallows and i`m wondering if BW intend to hang boaters who have no licence or could it just be the pubs sign that usually hangs here. Maybe i might
e mail the picture and my hanging suggestion and see if they have a sense of humour.
A nice growth of Fungi on what would have been a boring dead tree halfway through the Hillmorton locks. Maybe the boat that usually moors here is called Fungi and this is a living sign.
Moored at Braunston and along comes amongst the all day procession of boats one i recognise
it`s Pip & Roger on Windsong. Nowhere to moor as usual so just a quick hello and until we meet again enjoy.

Mike Perham is on his way home from his solo round the world trip. The 16yr old is crossing the Atlantic homeward bound and i for one hope he gets a big reception for what he has achieved
