Long Wittenham to Abingdon

This is the first time I have had a connection good enough to post the blog with pics so her goes with an update since reading.
Miles 5.5 Locks 2
We did get to see the Pendon railway Museum but it was only a fleeting visit arranged by the landlady of the Plough Pub after she told us we couldn@t stay on the mooring s this afternoon as a wedding reception had been booked and the mooring was required by the 100ft Salter Steamer that was delivering the guests to the pub. The asked one of the Pendon volounteer operators if we could enter earlier than the published opening time of 2 pm We had a threequarter hour guided tour with lots of looking into areas not usually seen and we were given complementary tickets as well. The donation I made was generous.
