A quick dash to Fenny

When we were last on the boat we had arrived at Banbury Tramway which is a fairly common and convenient spot to leave her.
I have just had a cataract operation which means I cannot drive for a while. I was first told 10-14 days so did not worry about Tramway, in fact I spoke to C&RT and they were happy too. Then I was told that I would not be able to drive for at least 4-6 weeks. That's a completely different kettle of fish.
This weekend was the only time free (Judy is gong abroad on holiday with some of her friends) then we have things on at home, then we were going to Germany for a few days driving holiday, then a wedding. All this takes us up to the end of June.
So I booked Constance into Fenny Compton Marina for two months.
Judy & I caught the train to Banbury and off we went. Up through Banbury, stopping for the night in Cropredy. We went for a meal at the Red Lion (first time in there).
Then headed off northwards in the  morning. On the way we saw:
A lovely bracket fungus

Swans tending to their nest

Eggs in the nest!

Canada geese with goslings
We arrived at Fenny Compton Marina in time to obtain keys and fill in the necessary forms and settled Constance into her temporary berth.
In the evening we went for a meal at the Wharf Inn.
Sunday morning saw us catch a taxi to Banbury station and the train home.


  1. Good food at Fenny! Hope your vision is less cloudy now. We keep hoping to get to our boat but I now have a chest infection! What ever next? Chas

  2. Chas,
    I hope you are feeling better soon, the better weather should be coming along. Yes, get to your boat - you will feel better!
