and on to Wallingford

This morning’s breakfast was partaken courtesy of Tescos to save the cooking & washing up 😀

Keith joined us again in time for elevenses and we set off on this huge, scary river, the Thames, actually it wasn’t scary just wide. The locks were all electric/hydraulically operated, mostly by cheerful lock-keepers except the one who was on his lunchbreak and we had to disturb because we couldn’t get the gates to open (it was signed self-service, so we were meant to do it!) We had a lovely journey, such a change from our slow meanderings down the K & A, the scenery was stunning not to mention some of the magnificent properties and boathouses.

We heard today that Sandford lock is closed for repairs until Saturday so we may not be back at Heyford on schedule. We moored up at Wallingford this evening where I cooked up a Lamb curry.
