The Party has Started

We had a restful day today by first having a bit of a lie in then sitting out in the cratch with the papers. Del has been getting some water from the lock and Richard at the lock cottage has been serving the boaters. It has just stopped us worrying about showers and water usage.  The water levels here at Cropredy have been very up and down as we are moored between the pounds of the locks but we are getting used to leaning one minute and floating the next... Tonight was music night in The Red Lion pub and we were looking forward to a good jamming session as the pub has a music room with loads of instruments in it.. We got there at 8.00pm and Robin, a guy moored just in front of us with his wife Diane on nb snowdrop, turned up with his guitar..  He kicked it all off and boy was he good.. They are a lovely couple and ended up raising £254.44p for cancer research. We rocked and jammed until the early hours as Gary the landlord left the pub open as we were raising so much money.. We left at 1.30am and had lost our voices from singing all night.. Cropredy had got off to a good start and all the boaters were in a party mood. Rock on tomorrow night!!!
