2016-Sep-15 - UK Trip 2016 - Below Napton Locks to Marina - Thursday
I walked to the local Napton shop to buy a paper and have a coffee.

Then we pottered around for most of the morning and went back again for lunch and a few supplies.

Finally it was time to pack up and head back to the marina - our boat trip was near its end.

We took on water, travelled several miles through a number of bridges, rang the marina to tell them we were coming in early and made a very sharp turn to enter.

It was the perfect note to end on - I managed to make a ninety degree turn in to a narrow channel without even touching the sides - I don't know if I will ever be able to pull that one off again.

We docked up, pretty much where we left from, Linda made dinner from the supplies we were carrying and we turned in.

Tomorrow morning we need to do a load of laundry, pack up and transfer our luggage to the hire car and be out of the boat by 9.30 am.
