The Cruise of the Dondevoy

    


In the morning, after a very late start, we continued up the canal, over the two aqueducts to the Navigation Inn at Wooton Warwen, where we met some young men from a narrow boat. A bit of judicious chat secured us an invitation to coffee on their boat, where we stayed until it was time for them to leave. We followed their boat down the canal again after a decent interval to avoid catching up with them, and eventually moored just above the bottom lock of the Old Stratford flight, from where we were given a lift on a boat right into Stratford.

When we eventually walked back, and were playing a game of cards over a cup of coffee, the young men we had met before came up from Stratford in a somewhat drunken state. They stayed and talked for some time, during which Sarah fell asleep. So, it turned out to be a late night after all.
