A pleasant walk on the Thames

Grandson has to visit each time he stays with us.
He loves to cycle on the towpath and feed the ducks and geese wild bird seeds.

lovely 3 mile ish walk along the riverside. beware to go over the folly bridge at oxford so you are on the correct side because if you go on the boathouse side the path runs out. beware the many cyclists who dont alert you theyre coming. suggest you walk nearest the hedge not the riverbank!!! nice solid path all the way.
we got the yellow oxford bus back from iffley having downloaded the excellent oxford bus app and buying good value dat tickets.
lovely lunch too at prince of wales in iffley.

A very pleasant walk to get there and lovely for a sit down on a bench overlooking the lock. Lots of geese resting there too. A copy of the Cambridge mathematical bridge was there.

Fascinating watching the skills ( or lack of them) of water craft and the expertise of the lock keepers whilst enjoying the beauties of nature along the Thames Patg

A beautiful spot on the river Thames just outside Oxford. The water rushes under one as you amble across the lock

Family meal

Family get together from Hereford and Kennington. Nice meal served in a timely manner. Staff very courteous and explained the options on the menu. Last opportunity to dine with my late father, glad it was a happy occasion.
