We left Radford Semele in leisurely fashion Saturday morning
Because of the distances between the first 6 locks we couldn’t lash the two boats together, so Sue had some company on the back in the locks
Happy people finishing the day’s locking with the 4 at Bascote (including the two lock staircase).
We moored at Long Itchingdon in plenty of time for a pint at The Two Boats Inn before settling down in front of the TV to watch Strictly.
About 11.00pm, we had an unexpected visitor; it was puddy cat Nemo (from NB Beefur) who availed himself of Daisy’s cat flap to pop into the well deck for a quick hello – fortunately, Daisy had long since tucked herself up in bed and neither dog batted an eyelid.
When we woke Sunday morning, a third cat was watching us from the far bank.
G and I took ourselves off for a walk down the disused railway line
keeping a wary eye out for some over friendly horses
before returning to the towpath

This chimney reminds me of Chickin’ Lickin’ as it appears to be holding up the sky.
