September 2009 we cruised under the wedding bridge which was built to get the wedding guests from their cars to the wedding reception over the canal.
Today we cruised under the same bridge, I hope the marriage is faring better than the bridge.
Also today we saw the ultimate dry dock and got held up at Napton Locks because of the number of boats leaving Cropredy.

 As the sunset on our stay in Cropredy it was an 7am start this morning as we have to take on water before we start the journey back to Braunston.


 Day Three at Cropredy started with a rock version of Morris dancing music to Marillion ending with Fairport Convention celebrating 50 years as a band.

Tuesday night was our last night in Banbury and whilst we were there the boat moored in front of us took a picture and posted it on Facebook and sent it to friends of ours.
We are moored for ten days while we wait to go to the Cropredy Music Festival

Tonight we said goodbye to Jack and George and the black swan came to say hello as we missed an opportunity to photograph it earlier in the day.
Also tonight Cassie thought she would give me a cuddle as I sat on the front steps.



 As Peter is still trying to sort out our battery problem we travel out of Oxford and start our journey back.
Whilst in Oxford Diane and Peter's grand children joined us for a couple of days to travel on their boat.

Today we made it to Oxford and celebrated Diane's and Peter's wedding anniversary with a Thai meal.
