An excerpt from Wind in the Willows

Nice? It's the ONLY thing, said the Water Rat solemnly, as he leant forward for his stroke. Believe me, my young friend, there is NOTHING - absolute nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Simply messing, he went on dreamily: messing - about - in - boats; messing----'

Where are we now (2)

Who is it and where is it
Well another marathon day as Ian and Karen put it.  We left Cape Locks at 07:30 and travelled through Warwick and met up with John and Karen on Australis and worked all the way up to Calcut with them - they didn't join us for the final three to Napton Junction.

Then on and up the Napton flight and we are moored this evening with our stern just (and only just) hanging over the lock waiting area above Marston Doles top lock - we hope to get through Cropredy and its festival tomorrow and that will be a slow 3 miles.

Picture shows my crew crossing the lock - anyone guess who it might be and which lock it is? 

Miles: 19
Locks: 33
