Osney to Abingdon

Miles 9 Locks 4
Red was the colour for special wildlife sightings today, 3 red kites just downstream of Sandford Lock, a Red Breasted Merganser at the moorings in Abingdon and a Little Grebe near Nuneham Railway Bridge. We cruised down to Abingdon this morning and as there was a queue at the water point above the lock we came straight through and to our delight found a mooring by the swimming pool. After a brief visit to the shops we have been lazing in the sun alongside the boat all afternoon. After tea we walked back to the lock to get rid of our rubbish and walked the opposite bank back to Abingdon and crossed the river and back to the boat. Tonight the pictures are of lazeing on the moorings and the Red Breasted Merganser.
