And onto the Oxford

Sunday 24th August

There was a slight mist on the canal this morning and usually that indicates a nice day, so the forecast was right as today has been lovely though a slight bit of cloud and a breeze at times. We left our mooring at Sutton Stop around 8.30am, Kev walked across to the stop lock while I brought the boat around the sharp turn through the bridge past the Greyhound pub and then onto the North Oxford canal. We have had a lovely day cruising with several boats about, there is nothing else much to say about today but we have moored on the visitor moorings at Rugby and we went to the Tesco for a bit of shopping. We will stay put now as the forecast is not good for tomorrow and not that good for Tuesday either. The lads will be picked up on Tuesday by my friend Pam and Sam will stay with her until we get back home to our village Roos. We are going to pop to the Bell & Barge pub at bridge 58 for some tea later. Hope all of you boaters stay nice and dry!!


  1. Hi Ann & Kev, I have just come across your blog (as you do!) and wanted to say hello! We moor over winter at Droitwich and saw George and Carol every now and then. We had been following their blog for a while and keep an eye on Still Rockin every now and then. We have been out since 23 May - our route took us to Braunston, Northampton, Peterborough, across the Middle Levels, down to Bedford for the river festival, then Kings Lynn, across the Wash to Boston, Lincoln, Newark, Nottingham, Sawley and we are now in Fradley heading for the Caldon Canal before heading back home. Maybe we will meet up one day, in the meantime happy travels, Jennie & Chris nb Tentatrice

  2. Hi Jennie & Chris, thanks for introducing yourselves to us, we will look forward to meeting you both in the future.We did the Caldon a couple of months ago and we enjoyed it although it had got quite overgrown in a lot of places and seemed quite shallow too. We had done it a few years ago on our other boat" 4EverMoore" & liked it then, hope you enjoy it.
    Ann & Kev
