Boat Blog: The Odyssey 2016 – Day 41 – River Thames

Posted by indigodream on 29 August, 2016

Just re-posting this as the original posted out of sequence for some reason – let’s see if this actually puts day 41 after day 40!

Rewind to Sunday 24th July

Goring to Abingdon

My goodness, this could be the shortest post ever!

I recall that we had another quiet night thanks to our beautiful meadow mooring and that we woke to yet another fine day. But I have no notes and hardly any photos so heaven knows what we did with the day! I only know that we didn’t have any guests on board and that we ended up in Abingdon, where we squeezed into a mooring space just upstream of the bridge. We filled with diesel just below the bridge on the left as you go upstream, nice service, reasonable price. Richard went back to collect the car from Goring by bus and train, which worked well. Richard says he noticed that the moorings outside the Beetle & Wedge were empty when we passed by this morning, so maybe we could have risked pushing on to there on Saturday evening!

That’s all folks…..

Beautiful scenery...

Beautiful scenery…

A taste of things to come - the river will get even narrower in the upper reaches :-)
