Oxford to Kidlington Green…

Cassie and I went for a wander down Sheepwash Channel yesterday evening, to look at the Thames.

SDC11127St Barnabas Church, whose bell rings every hour, right by our mooring!

What a difference a day makes!  After grey cloudy skies the last few days, we left Oxford in blazing sunshine this morning.  We went down Isis Lock, turned and came back up as it is only possible to wind a 50ft boat above the lock.  After watering and getting rid of rubbish on the way out, we continued on and moored just below Kidlington Green Lock this time, a much nicer mooring than we had on Thursday night.

4.5 miles and 4 locks (Isis twice)
