The Thames and good weather

These words are not always synonymous! We have been fortunate so far! Here are some more river views for you to enjoy, taken on our cruise from Osney to Sandford Locks.

Folly Bridge - we went under the SE end which is to the right of this photo!
Here is the end of the River Cherwell by Christchurch Meadows - it has been present during our time on the Oxford Canal, running prettily, in flood and even iced over!

The River Cherwell joins the Thames

Even the weirs at Iffley Lock are well kept and attractive

Downstream of Iffley Lock and the covered weir footbridges

The cut around Rose Island (also known as Kennington Island) once housed a boatyard, apparently. Now there are various types of boats moored there.

Rose Island - the river stream is to the right, the house is hidden by the tree from this upstream view
This house has an amazingly long garden - but what a place to come to on a sunny afternoon or warm evening!

The house is right of centre - you can see it just!
Lastly another photo of our mooring - beyond this barge, moored awaiting who knows what from the lock repairs!

Boats, crane and blue, blue sky

  1. Now these are the sort of photos that make us wish we didn't have to keep waiting....
