We got to Claydon locks and all the locks were against us but we had plenty of time. By the time we had got to Varney's lock we were third in a queue and passed Keith and Ann on n.b. Oakfield heading north. We were lucky enough to get a nice mooring with a lovely garden ready made for us. We picked up a few bits at the shop and chilled in the cratch till our visitors arrived. Len (Del's dad) & Terry & nephew Thomas got to us at about 5.00pm and after drinks we walked down to the Brasenose pub for something to eat. Later in the evening one of our favourite guitarists, Derrin Nauendorf was playing and they let Thomas stay in the pub and watch.
