The time has come the Walrus said... think of other things, of stocking tops and knicker legs and other naughty things of narra dykes and sacks of coal and getting off the Thames (my apologies to Lewis Carroll!).
I have, of late, been very remiss with the blog but we've had a brill time back on the Thames and down to Dorchester. The river is rising and we have 5 days of rain forecast so G wants to be off, under the low Osney Bridge and back onto the ditches

 Some seriously wild moorings (more abandoned than parked!).
but the weather is making life on the river a bit faster now
we've had some fabulous walks
but kayak opportunities are becoming limited as the flow is now too fast to come back upstream 

I love Abingdon - it was once my local town but, when you work all hours, it's just a place to shop or use a dentist/doctor. Coming back as a tourist has been fabulous.

A random photo (taken by G) that I just had to throw up


  1. It was lovely to meet you both earlier in the summer. Hope to see you again in Abingdon next time.


    1. You too Alistair - unfortunately we rather rushed through this time

  2. I know I'm biased but isn't The Thames simply fan-tas-tic?

    1. It most certainly is, it has everything really from pretty little towns and isolated villages to places like Windsor.
