Laid over in Hotel Lucas overnight and then caught a train (great ride) to Oxford. Checked into a quaint B & B. Then it was a guide tour from the "Oxford Blue Man" Chris Lim, for a tour of the colleges. It was brilliant as we got to see places not really accessible to the average tourist. Then again, we are most certainly NOT ordinary tourists. We ARE parents of an "Oxford Blue Man" ! ...
... it is soaking, as are all his clothes inside - bummer! Then for €24 we catch a bus into town (we think?). Get some of threat to be told we must all get off and hop onto another bus. Okey dokey. 10 minute bus ride and we're there. Wherever 'there' may be. It's 8.30 at night, kids tired (Julia had slept Oxford-Gatwick but Mac just keeps going since 6.30 this morning).

While he owned the site he lived in another rather ...
... on Scyeffe in the lock, also heading for Banbury Canal Day. We moved on out of the village via the facilities block (which has an awkward mooring point) to Slat Mills Bridge. Another warm evening sitting out on the front deck. A tiny dinghy with an electric outboard engine came past, and he stopped to show us his folder of pictures. The oars can be used as handles like a wheelbarrow to move the boat, and the whole thing can be put in a hatchback ...
