Lovely sunny morning when I took Jimmy a walk; we crossed the river at Abingdon lock and I could not help taking this photo of Autumn Myst and Autumn Years moored in the sun by the park and swimming pool.
By the bridge is the old Mill Stream with its lovely old cottages and delightful show of flowers,
Didcot is not how I imagined it to be. There were far more shops and lots of flags denoting the countries of the World Cup Football. The picture on the left shows the change from very New Cinema to very Old where the new shopping centre has been built right up to the old cottages.
En Route we passed through the lovely village of Drayton.
We caught the X1 back to Abingdon which goes via Sutton Courtney and we saw the old Courtney Manor House and the Church. The village is close to the Thames and only a stones throw from Culham Lock.
It turned out to be a lovely evening and so after taking Jimmy a last walk we retired to the bank for G & T’s with the crew of Autumn Years until quite late.
