Rain, Rain and more Rain

On Saturday we arrived at Shipton-on-Cherwell just outside of Thrupp.  It rained and rained and .......... rained!  The towpath was incredibly muddy and the fields very flooded.
The section of the River Cherwell which we had to navigate was just about still in the amber.  We are moored just opposite the church at Shipton because it enabled road access in readiness for Megan's arrival.

Because of all the rain we have had The Thames is now apparently on red boards.  Just because we have shelled out £££ for a Gold Licence this year!

Megan and Maisie are coming to stay with us for a few days so we will just have to stay put and hope that the river levels drop soon.

Solace is, however, in the shape of The Boat Inn is just around the corner in Thrupp!  This is one of Rodney's favourite places!

The Boat Inn
We have discovered a very handy walk from Shipton churchyard that leads right to the pub!  Dogs are allowed in the bar.
