I had Heather with me today which was lovely. I do enjoy Heathers company and this time she had a go at steering. After a close encounter with the bank, a tree, some mud and a pole she got the hang of manoeuvring the boat around really well. There were a couple of boats stemmed up at Aynho and this little dog, from one of the boats, legged it up the towpath at a dog and forgot to stop. She was very friendly and made sure the lock was done proficiently until her owner arrived to retrieve her.
Grants lock is always a welcome sight.
When filling up with water Fran and Peter came to visit. The Mill centre decided we all wanted to listen to music so we took the opportunity to move on.
