Day 7 Marston Doles – Claydon
It is still summer, warm, dry, and sunny and ahead today we have eleven dreamy miles of depopulated summit level. There are no locks, just a few farm bridges as dis-embarkation points where I can take my long haired one ashore for her exercise. There is of course still no wifi or mobile signal to speak of which seems to irritate my bearded one.
We stopped for a very pleasant break in the garden of the Wharf Inn at Fenny Compton. They ate a hearty lunch I sat under the table. My long haired one used their washing machine facilities to do some laundry and this seemed to make her happy.
Our destination today is Claydon top lock for our overnight stay. This little clutch of old workshop buildings ( now a residence) is of particular interest to my bearded one as he used to own a lease on it 280 dog years ago. This is another long story. Today he and my long haired one are hoping to get their paints out to do some sketching, I find this very boring.. My picture today is inside my long kennel and you might notice the sun has just apparently passed over the yard arm, I am having a little rest. Love Douglas x
