All to Ourselves

We are on the Thames! 

We deliberated alot - mainly because of the cost of the additional licence but ....... here we are £106 lighter!

I love The Thames and we really have had it to ourselves today - we have seen one other narrowboat (moored up by the time we reached them) and one small plastic cruiser.

We are currently moored just upstream of Pinkhill Lock by Farmoor Reservoir and it's accompanying nature reserve.  Already I have seen lots of gosling greylag geese, great crested grebe, swifts, swallows, a reed bunting, a reed warbler and a barn owl taking prey back to it's nest!

Yes, on the river the water is deeper, cleaner and the wildlife better - I love the Thames!

This section is the Upper Thames and it really is quite remote but we intend to while away the next couple of weeks between Oxford and Letchlade........ as long as the red wine lasts really!
