Onto the North Oxford

Tuesday 10th  September 2013

The last few days have been a real joy and a good wind down for us. We travelled the remainder of the Coventry Canal on Tuesday morning, passing Caxton moored up in Nuneaton. Unfortunately no sign of Paul or Elaine as it would have been nice to meet them and tell them how much we enjoy their blog.
The Manly Ferry aka Caxton
The turn onto the Ashby Canal was very tempting especially as we haven't been up there this year, but I'm sure it won't be long before we visit it again. I've never quite understood Charity Dock and it seems to get more cluttered with sad looking craft every time we pass, but I couldn't help but chuckle at this little fellow perched on the bow of one of the boats. I even considered putting an offer in for
him, but was strongly advised not to !!!!
Marston Junction - The Ashby Canal
Can't see what the problem is myself !!
We stopped of at Hawkesbury and used the services before continuing onto the North Oxford. The Greyhound was very tempting for lunch but willpower won the day (it doesn't happen very often). We eventually moored up just beyond All Oaks Wood for the night.
