I love getting one of these slots at Wallingford. It is, by my estimation, a lovely place to be.
A walk up into the town from the bridge gives us access to a huge branch of Waitrose. Boaters with plenty of money can stock up their galley cupboards.
Lunch near Radley.
May bank holiday and we headed downstream with our friends + their dog, Monty. This was the most beautiful of days, with strong sunshine.
Even with factor 50 sun cream, we all got a bit pink (not the dog).
Lunch at Kings Lock Island
This Winter has been extraordinary. 16 boats have sunk and the guys at Oxford Cruisers have been busy salvaging up and down the river.
We took a couple of days out and spent the night at Dorchester on Thames. As you can see here we found a very cosy mooring tucked in under the trees. We had a fabulous walk up to the top of Whitenham Clumps before a supper of pasta and olive bread.
