I have to apologise for a very sparse blog over the past few weeks. We’ve had a mixture of some lovely cruising and several trips off the boat for various reasons. At this time of year we celebrate a “royal” birthday and eat as much cake as possible. There’s usually one of us that can legitimately blow out the candles. We even had a visit from Tim and Veve.
Anyway this is a boat blog and this week we are enjoying Banbury. The Oxford Canal runs straight through the centre of Banbury and the local authorities have taken advantage of this, creating a pleasant communal shared space.
However mooring is restricted to 48 hours so we stopped about a mile out of town.
We had the advantage of some noisy neighbours, 5 guard geese, who belonged to cottage opposite.
It was quite amusing watching people’s reaction to 5 hissing geese, made all the more hilarious because we had so much rain last week that the tow path had become a quagmire.
We’ll moor here again, 10 minutes walk to Tesco, and 30 minutes walk into town. And the neighbours kept us amused.
