Above Rushey Lock

We had arranged to meet our son-in-law’s parents Ann and Richard at Newbridge at 12:00. So to make sure we were there on time we set off just after seven. It was a very pleasant morning and ¬†good to reacquaint ourselves with the upper Thames. We haven’t been this way for over 10 years. At that our of the morning Eynsham lock was on self service, so we bought our 7 day Thames licence at Pinkhill lock. We arrived at Newbridge in plenty of time and found a mooring just above the bridge against a farmer’s field.

Ann and Richard arrived about twelve. We had lunch on board then took them for a short ride upstream, then back to their car at Newbridge.

After they had gone we carried on upstream to moor up for the night just above Rushey Lock. It was a really lovely evening and we sat out on the river bank with a G&T (Heddi) and a glass of wine (me).
