Some tricky navagation

We were woken up by our new friend also wanting his breakfast. See if you can spot the spider grabbing a lift. The rain was still coming down when we got up this morning but was forecast to get better in the afternoon, so we just pottered about opening and closing the side doors every time a shower came. We set off at 2.00pm with the sun trying to peep through. It was so nice cruising with the damp and dusky smells and the water droplets still hanging on to the leaves. We were surprised how much it had over grown in some parts, since the last time we came down the Oxford, but it made for interesting navigation. We got to Fenny Compton and the plan was to get water, but no chance... There were four boats waiting to get on the water point so we had to head up towards the marina where we planned to get a pumpout and top up with diesel. After getting all the necessity's we then made our way down to Clayton locks where we moored for the night. Al cooked a lovely dinner and in the sunshine (at last) we sat in the cratch and relaxed.
