A Great Day Out

Yesterday I persuaded John to take a rare day off and we headed to Oxford to watch our daughter row in the Oxford 8s. After all the glorious weather Becky had booked a punt to take us on the River Cherwell – it was raining all day – even the chap at the boathouse said we didn’t have to go just because we had booked! Not to be deterred we continued – it was very peaceful – eating our picnic in the rain on the punt! Next stop was the Thames where we watched Becky and her team head for the start of the race. Eventually they floated past, having ‘bumped’ early in the race and not needing to row further! They were very pleased with the result and we had enjoyed our day out.
