We left the moorings at 2 pm and just moved the boat to above Marston Doles Top Lock. I then cycled back and picked up the car, drove back to the boat and picked up Diana before heading off to Oxford for a meal at The Lock Fyle Restaurant with my Grand daughter, daughter, her husband and his parent. After eating Diana and I then drove back to the boat where I dropped her off before taking the car back to the moorings and cycling back along the towing path to the boat in the dark. I do not recommend cycling along towing paths in the dark in rural areas as you cant always see the edge or the brambles hanging out.

Set off just before 9 am and arrived at Fenny a little after 11 am. where the Whitaker tribe were waiting for us. We loaded up and winded to head back towards our moorings stopping for a BBQ for a couple of hours near the Wormleighton radio mast. I then drove the Whitakers back to Fenny so they could pick their cars up.
It had been a sunny day with a few clouds preventing it getting to hot, a perfect day.
