... not as far as we'd originally intended!
10 am Monday and we've been to Cleeve and back for water ...
It was good to see Hambleden Marina's 'Gypsy Willow' out and about above Wallingford Bridge with Ben and friend onboard.
Cafe busy at Benson but not many hire boats out and about
Stunning Shillingford Bridge
The most beautiful boathouse on the River Thames, just look at that ornate brickwork - marvellous!
Just a few yards afterward we thought we'd pull in if we could find a deep enough mooring but this one wasn't so we pulled away again and saw another immediately on the other side of the river
... from where I took these pictures - as I said not as far as we originally intended but this will do to while away a couple of days.
180° panorama from our mooring - good hey?
The sun was out and it was lovely and warm so guess what we did for the rest of the day?
George doing a bit of gardening to make space for the BBQ - heaven!
The view from the bow - we shall explore this tomorrow
Snug as a bug in a rug!
Out exploring ... what's this hulk of rust ...
Looks like it started out as someone's project but now looks like it has a wildlife garden in it
By climbing a five-bar gate we managed to get to the main road passing the Shillingford Hotel in the distance
One way only over the bridge - but watch out for the ducks!
Empty swimming pool at the hotel
Gosh, that's a rather large cruiser passing by later in the afternoon.
It's been a good couple of day here even though the internet is a bit hit and miss.
