Suze and I had a great summer on the Thames. Though she only came for five weeks I spent nearly 3 months enjoying the sun.  There are places where you can spend days on the bank and never put on clothes. It's fab just lying in the sun and getting an all-over tan. 

We returned to the Oxford Canal at the end of summer and headed for Banbury for the Banbury Canal Day which was a great success for its first day after the Covid debacle.

Our plans for the winter were to moor in Thrupp, we had a winter mooring. We watered up late October in preparation for our journey to Thrupp and were expecting to head that way at the weekend hoping to arrive before the stoppages began. However, whilst we were watering I decided to empty my rubbish. On my return, Matt of Tooley's asked if I wanted a mooring. 

Now we love Tooley's and we love Matt. How could we say no! 

So for the foreseeable future, we will be mooring at Tooley's.

If you happen to pass by please stop. We will be only too glad to host your good selves to a few beers and sometimes a meal. We will be moving onto the wharf as soon as the current incumbent has been sold and moved, maybe end of November!
