Muffin has now got the hang of the Grand Union lock gates and hops up on the step and crosses the top without any hesitation. Banjo frightened the life out of Diane and I at one lock as he decided not to cross on the top but just above water level!
The locks were nicely spaced apart today – sometimes Richard would walk others he would ride. After Radford bottom lock (I don’t think there is a top one) there is a long stretch of lockless canal through Leamington. There are some really nice houses with canalside gardens all very nicely kept.
We pulled over by Bridge 46 to go to Tesco – I spent a small fortune but then I haven’t really been shopping since our Tesco delivery in Leicester Marina.

We decided to go for a last supper at the Cape of Good Hope – I felt it was rather appropriate! We had a very nice meal and if you check in on Facebook while you are there they will give you 50p off a pint of beer!
