Monday 28th
Hi all,
Still having problems with the blog I think it is the laptop and java have to wait till I see Paul this week hope he can fix it at the moment I cannot add photo put can write well you can see that .
So were are we and were we going to be going .Monday night we spent moored up at Pangbourne meadows nice place and Tuesday we will be going into Reading and then down the Kennet and Avon canal we are hoping to get to Theale then, we will be staying in this area then for a few day as my dad is going into RBH for a back opp (hope all goes well dad) so anyone wanted to see us just get in touch we love to see you all

So the trips so far down the River Thames

Saturday 27
We left our mooring at kidlington about 8.30 and on to oxford city (lots of boats moored here some we believe should not even be on the canal) even seen boats with garden shed now (photo to follow soon)

So now onto the River Thames all well saw some people out rowing but not many as most of them were in London for the boat race even all the boat houses were closed

Going through Osney lock we saw some punts out

We saw this heron on the way downstream he did not hear us coming

At Abingdon lock we had to wait for Radley collage rowing teams to go through

Once we got through we carried on to culham lack were we moored for the night


Sunday 28th
Got a early start it was colder than last few days but the sun came out ,we were going to moor up at little wittenham but no mooring !!!! So we went onto Shillingford Bridge moored up and then had a lovely afternoon with some friends Mandy and Kevin , Phil ,Donna and children and then mum dad and their friend Sheila so we had a few people there was nice

Monday 29th
We left the mooring about 9am it was a little cold but still nice went pass Benson and Wallingford it is good to see place you know and to see them from different view (have some photo I post later) next was Goring lock then we went pass Child Beale wildlife trust on to Whitchurch lock and then to our mooring at Pangbourne meadows
