We were up early but decided to have some breakfast before we headed down the Buckby flight..
With David as our help in hand we timed it so we didn't have to queue and went down with a hire boat with a good crew.. it made life very easy for us all through these normally difficult locks..
Once we hit the bottom lock it was easy cruising through the very pleasant countryside where we stopped for water at Weedon..
We then continued on through Nether Heyford and moored just before Bugbrooke..
The first thing we did was put up the washing line in this glorious weather. Then David brought out a couple of beers and we put up the chairs and table..
It wasn't long before the BQQ was on the go..
