Banbury to Heyford

On Monday I picked up a friends boat from Banbury and took it to their friends mooring in Lower Heyford. I very rarely spend 7 hours boating in one day, but on Monday, with the help of Nick, I did. It was glorious being out on the water on a bigger boat, this was similar in size to the first boat I lived on which was 63ft. I only took 3 photographs!

and Boots


Just as we were coming through Nell Bridge the owners of the boat were standing on it!  Apparently the sat nav had taken them that way and as they passed over the bridge they saw a boat that looked a bit like theirs. Low and behold, it was.  We stopped at the Great Western Arms to see them and have a quick drink together before we continued our journey again. I LOVE the Great Western Arms, the service is great, the people are friendly, the beer excellent, the food fantastic and the atmosphere wonderful.
