I am having to place a watermark on the blog content as someone on Facebook is stealing photos and claiming them as their own. I wouldn't mind if they asked first and attributed it to my blog. If it continues I will name and shame them. I hope it doesn't spoil your enjoyment.

A pub lunch with friends.

On a Monday when everyone else is at work it seems a bit odd, almost guilty that we skive off and go to the pub, but we're on holiday and it's got to be done. We headed to Braunston, turned right at the junction and passed Narrowboat Kernow moored near the water point. We said hello as we passed and winded in the entrance to the marina, then we moored up just in front of Kernow. Then we met up with friends Dave and Anne and strolled down to the Admiral Nelson for lunch. The waitress warned that there would be a long wait for food because they were short staffed that day, but we didn't mind, we're on the cut and time doesn't matter so much that we can't wait. It arrive an hour later and it was worth waiting for, it was delicious. We'll be back soon.
Later we strolled back to our boats and we headed up the Oxford Canal toward Hillmorton but only got as far as bridge 87 where we saw a good mooring spot so we bagged it.

TQ in the distance
The weather has been very kind to us today, a little chilly in the morning, and quite warm by lunchtime which is probably why we're plagued by wasps, there's thousands of them everywhere and they're persistent little blighters, quite aggressive and won't take no for an answer.
Tomorrow we head up through Hillmorton Locks and beyond.
