Day 41 – Oxford to Goring

Day 41 – Oxford to Goring

Share on social media

Started at the ISIS lock, the entry to the river Thames. This kind of winds it’s way out of Oxford, then broadens out a bit after the Osney lock.

Wrong date

The lock keeper at the Osney lock issues me a licence with the wrong date on it.

I paid for 2 days, as you can see, but she’s yesterdays date on it, the 13th.

Also, I paid by cash. She’s put that I paid by card.

This is going to have the net effect of having me pulled up and making a claim that I haven’t paid, when really I have.

The blog is a testament to my movements. Also the photos I took on the 13th pretty clearly show that I wasn’t on the Thames.

Some fun for tomorrow.

Cruising down the Thames

Is much faster. The locks are all hydrolic.

It’s a not as pretty as the canal.

One thought on “Day 41 – Oxford to Goring

  1. Oh dear…..it sounds like ‘one of those days’. Hope you manage to sort out the Paypal thing. One would think that the lock keepers would know the correct date, but I suppose they do get things wrong…always check before leaving!! River cruising is quite different from cruising the canals, I guess, you can’t just stop off where ever you like….so I guess you have pretty much worked out where you will moor each night. It’s very interesting though and things look so different from the water. Hope you have a good day today and that the weather holds fair for your cruising 🙂
