Set off in the mist from above Somerton Deep Lock near the lift bridges, passing NB Conqueror, we enjoyed yet another sunny morning travelling north through Aynho Wharf. We passed Mortimer Bones, complete with face mask, working on NB Bones. No doubt we shall read about this in CanalBoat, soon.

Our old share boat NB Osprey was moored there, so John patted an old friend as we went past. The canal was quite busy both ways, but we didn't have to wait too much, enjoying the usual friendly chats.
Reaching Banbury, we moored below the lock as we were fourth in a queue, and found our favourite pizza restaurant for lunch. Food shopping followed, then Liana bought herself a duffle coat, complete with furry hood, for the winter. The car was ok, so off we went again, towards Cropredy and Claydon.
Wed 30 Sept from Thrupp to Somerton A Berry beautiful day!
