Banbury to Heyford

Someone has definitely shortened the canal. We left Banbury at 11am, and arrived in Lower Heyford by 4 positively energised, if not in shock. Aynho Weir lock was a easy peasy.

The weather was fantastic, pouring rain, hail and more rain. The sun came out and Steve decided to celebrate by taking his waterproofs off - fool! The rain poured. Next time he disappeared up the front when the sun came out I told him not to even think about taking his waterproofs off - he defiently waved them at me. The sun stayed out longer, but he soon put them back again, and stopped talking about the weather!

Steve is excellent crew, thats two good trips so far, and I think we will make it into Oxford tomorrow.

Maffi has headed up north - he is off for a pole for something or the other. I have really enjoy his company, and we both understand eachother better than we did. I shall miss him, but que sera sera.
