On the Monday Joe went off with the car having arranged to get it serviced and MOT'd on the Tuesday morning before putting it back in storage. On Wednesday I caught the bus from Braunston into Rugby to get a new phone from T-Mobile, the contract was up and my phone was on it's last legs anyway. Thursday we had mail to collect from the Post Office so it was not until today that we finally made a move and left Braunston after our prolonged stay and what a lovely day to travel after all this wet weather we have been having.
We moored above the first lock on the Napton flight and I went and found Sue and Vic on No Problem who were moored 20 minutes walk away. We have arranged to meet tomorrow for a drink; today being our 'fast day'* we don't drink any alcohol and on Sunday we have accepted, with a certain amount of alacrity I might add, an invitation to Vic's famous Sunday Roast!!
*(We have been following the 5:2 or IF (Intermittent fasting) diet for the last six months)

Leaving Joe fiddling with final fittings on the latest solar panel I took the dogs and headed for an attempt on Napton summit...
See the deer grazing in the centre of the shot?
