|The Cherry tree above where we were moored|
|The rubbish left by the talkative University students after they had gone.|
|Ian clearing rubbish from the lock beam at Isis lock. Oxford!! The rubbish capital!|
|Just in case you don't know how to wind!!|
|On to the Thames|
|First thing to greet us was this heron|
|Cruiser forcing the girls over toward the weir!|
|Cruiser long gone leaving the ladies to slowly make there way out.|
All manner of craft where out in force today. We forgot that today was Saturday so it came as quite a shock to contend with canoeist, rowers and the odd very large trip boat.
At Iffley lock we had our first taste of things to come. We must have waited a good 30 minutes before we got into the lock and boy were we packed in. Every lock we came to was the same. We hadnt bargined on such a long wait. We may have to rethink our timings. River Wey is a good 80 miles from Oxford. Maybe we will have to purchase another weeks license if we don't make it by the 26th. Thats the expiry date on our currant license and I really don't want to rush this beautiful river..
|Queuing for Iffley lock|
|Sardines come to mind!|
|Mooring for tonight above Abingdon Lock|
These damselfly thought my float would make a good place to lay her eggs,
|You can just see the females abdomen as she disappears into the depths.|
|Waiting for her return.|
