Cropredy to the top of Claydon Locks.

The morning began wet, with rain tip toeing on the roof of the back cabin. No point hurrying about, so I made our first cuppa of the day and we sat and listened to the radio and the rain.

Paddy got his walk in the rain, which of course did not please him one bit, but needs must. By 8.15 am the rain had blown over the the sun was out, so I went out and cleaned the brasses and prepared the boat for the off at 8.30 am.

We had a good road, with boats coming down the locks and leaving them ready for us to go into.

Passed this old wooden boat, with the back cabin at the wrong end of the boat. Sad to see a boat in need of such a lot of TLC.

Definitely a project in the making.

The end of this lock beam has clearly also seen better days.

On our way neither of us noticed this nest in the lock gate, so we reckon it is a new nest. I did wonder how many boaters have spotted it on their way in or out of the lock?

Having come up the Claydon Locks the wind was getting up and se we decided to stop. Lunch was made and once more the rain came down.

With the gusty wind, boats are finding it hard to control their boats, because we have had a couple of boats slam into us. This is our mooring for the night.
