It may seem strange to some people but our little cruise to Cropredy and the return this morning was one of the most relaxing outings I have had this year.
It isn't distance that makes boating enjoyable: Cropredy is only 4 (and a bit) miles by canal.
It isn't the weather: We had heavy showers yesterday and light drizzle this morning.
BUt it is the wonder of being on water, with family and friends. We had a very enjoyable evening with Aurega's crew on their mooring. We moored very close to them and our original intention was to return late yesterday evening. But with heavy thundery showers persisting an early start this morning was by far prefereable.
The return to home mooring was without incident in peaceful solitude: not a moving boat on the way and a sleeping crew!
