About Me

My photo
70 now and our five wonderful years aboard our narrowboat Skyy seem along time ago. Jacquie, allowed me to build my replica three wheeler kit car, which was a great success. Now it's time to start on a bigger project and that is to make a good Triumph Stag even better, here goes.

Peter and Fran or Eeyore and Fran of N.B. SONFLOWER, in fact turned up Wednesday evening to turn her round in readiness to heading of to London by the scenic route. Tooley’s having completed her new paint job and associated work. I waved to Peter and crew as they headed off first thing this morning.

Jacquie went off to Banbury’s open market (Thursdays & Saturdays) and on her return we went through the little lift bridge and filled with water. By the time we were ready to descend the lock it was lunch time and the surroundings were full of curious folk, but we made a decent job of entering and leaving the lock. We moored up just out of the town centre as Morrison’s supermarket is very conveniently accessible from bridge 168.

After lunch we headed off with Ayhno Wharf as our destination, we arrived about 6 p.m. and moored up just short of the wharf. We found out last year that this was a good place for visiting friends to safely leave their car overnight at £2 per night. Friends Steve and Caroline would be joining us on Friday evening, but I like to arrive in good time, so that I can select a good mooring for easy access, my intention was to move up opposite the wharf on Friday morning when currently moored boats should have moved on. Great TV reception here, useless in Banbury, although the internet speeds were brilliant, hence the pictures being posted at the same time as the blog. so what did we do? we both fell asleep in front of the TV, a combination of fresh air and sunshine I guess, nothing to do with being old bloggers.
