22nd May 2012

Long hot day today, wearing shorts and sandals for the first time.  We travelled 6 miles from Wootton Wawen to Kingswood Junction, negotiating 17 locks and a large number of narrow bridges. At Kingswood Junction we joined the Grand Union Canal, which is new territory for us.  Thankfully this is a wide canal and not too many locks, so some easy travelling over the next few days.   We stopped for an excellent lunch at the Black Boy near Knowle, on the Grand Union canal.  It is so nice to be able to sit outside and enjoy the warm sunshine.  We finally moored up in a beautiful spot just before Knowle.
