Up here on the S Oxford it's like Piccadilly blinkin' Circus compared to the GU. Hire boats everywhere. I suppose we'll get used to it. We had a slow haul up Napton locks this morning in the middle of a sizeable queue. Ironic isn't it, that the more you get out in the sticks, the more boats there are on the move. Still, it's nice to get back to single width locks and everyone seems friendly as usual.
Two bits of news today. First, the splendid and delightful news that The Ducks have got engaged. Many congrats James and Amy, that cheered us up immensely.
Then we hear that Sue and Vic have put NB No Problem up for sale. Anybody looking for a comfy live aboard boat that is tried and tested would do well to take a look. http://www.apolloduck.co.uk/feature.phtml?id=470784
