Being on a field mooring we have been plagued by this bunch of misfits. They seem to have taken a likening to eating mooring ropes and anything that is on a boat roof. We were even told that a couple of days ago they ate the cable from a solar panel. Needless to say the boat owner was not at all amused. Lucky for us we have Hamish on guard duty.
After a very enjoyable day relaxing at Lechlade we pull pins at 05.55 thanks to the cows that woke us up trying to eat our rear cover. It was always my intention to go to the end of the navigation which is the round house. We could have turned (winded) at the Halfpenny bridge , but i just had to go all the way to the end. I almost regretted that decision as it was so shallow at the winding hole that we got slightly stuck whilst trying to turn. Eventually after a lot of struggling we winded and headed back down the Thames.
After another 8 hour cruising day we finally moored up above Pinkhill lock where we were pleased to meet up with Sue and Vic on Narrowboat No Problem. Theirs was one of the first blogs i ever started reading and their site is full of very useful information . We had a good old natter and hope to meet up with them again soon.
Tomorrow we plan another early start as it now time to get back onto the South Oxford canal and head towards our next summer cruise destination .Our Thames licence has just about run out now. But one thing is for sure, As we have enjoyed it so much we will definitely be back on the Thames in the future
