Wallingford, River Thames




Yet another unnecessary sign. "Private Property" would have sufficed. Or are boaters really that ignorant?

And two pictures of two birds seen circling over the river.
A kite, possibly a red one and

And a buzzard. But I'm not sure and stand to be corrected.
The Thames was blissful; it was hot and sunny and quite lazy. We went through the first lock at 0800 as the electricity was on and we did not have to wait for a lock keeper.

We bought a two-day licence at Abingdon Lock for £33.00 and were mooring up at more new moorings, in Wallingford at 2pm. The new moorings are on the left hand side going downstream and cost £5.00 a night, payable at the swimming pool kiosk. The pools were packed with children and towards the end of the afternoon, so was the river with kids jumping off the bridge.

A yellow base card with blue dotted ribbon tied around the spine and knotted. The topper was a peel-off stuck onto watercolour paper and coloured in with water colours, the matted onto green, blue scalloped and silver card. Three flowers were then stuck in the bottom right hand corner.
