Coventry Basin Not a hive of activity but it is certainly close to the center.
We are going to stay a couple of days Retail therapy. Canal wasn't to bad
a little shallow in places, we ran over a few obstacles luckily nothing damaged
or tangled.

Another hot day, North Oxford Canal we struggled to find a mooring and the one we
 have is close to the Motorway.So we might just let the day cool then move on to The
Coventry canal.But how far do we have to go to get away from the M6.

Honest I'm not complaining but does it have to get so hot so fast I would rather get used
 to it slowly We had a 3hr siesta today we are just north of Napton junction. My computer
 Consultant (son Richard) is having problems getting the GPS to up date the Blog with
 our location.

We had an audience most of the way so Hoobie was happy lots of ear tickling
Hopefully we can make tomorrow a shorter day. Will try and have a look around

The Laptop is sitting on the boat roof no 3 signal inside. The sun is shinning so I'm not
 complaining we are moored at Lapwood in the Link. Railway a little close. 8hrs cruising yesterday don't want to do too many of them canal was busy but most going our way so we had to turn most locks just as well there is no water shortage anymore. Shorter day today moored up by 1400. Water filled and loos emptied. Only had a drink in the Fleur de Lys last night £3.15 a pint. well 2 actually and Richard didn't pay.Whats new.

I collected Mandy yesterday so she could take the car back to Barnstaple
It was her Birthday today so we went out for lunch and had Birthday
cake after tea. It was strange watching our car driving away. This is the first
time in 38 yrs that I have not had a car.
