Arts, Bourton (Great) and Canal

Bank Holiday Monday dawned sunny but cold in Great Bourton where we were staying with our friends John and Carolyn. If you follow our blog we introduced them way back when Epiphany was still at Colecraft as they visited to take photos to keep us up to date. They also came with us on our Maiden Voyage.

Crossing Dundas Aquaduct - two Johns and Epiphany!

Carolyn was well wrapped up, sitting in the bows on a cold sunny November day.

Back to the present! We spent a really lazy morning reading and chatting. The sun peeped out and tempted us out into the countryside to look at some of the art exhibitions in the area. One of which was at Cropredy, one of our favourite places on the Oxford canal and a few minutes away from Great Bourton. Needless to say we were drawn to the locks and watched four narrowboats going down the two locks there! It must be something to do with canal water in our veins we decided! Narrow locks look strange after the wide ones on the Kennet and Avon. We look forward to taking Epiphany up there and onto other familiar canals in the system.

We had a great time but we are now really glad to be back home. It is wonderful to really call Epiphany home. Tomorrow it is out onto the canal and time for our real holiday. I am having a new camera delivered tomorrrow as an early birthday present. I will try to blog our journey and hope to get some really good photos to share!
