Oxford Canal

 To the Oxford Canal today, for the third boat test in three weeks.  We're trying to get ahead before winter.  The promised sunny spells didn't materialise, but at least a handwritten sign in a window opposite some moorings provided some amusement.

We were all done by lunchtime, so I drove a few miles to Lower Heyford and went to the waterside cafe at Oxfordshire Narrowboats for lunch.  While I was there, the Jolly Boatman day boat, of Muddy Waters fame arrived back.
