Day 62 Thrupp to Above Eynsham
8 miles, 5 locks and 1 lift bridge
Today, starting in warm sunshine we headed south to the River Thames and our mini adventure on the nation's favourite river.
Leaving Thrupp - too early for an ice-cream
Attractive cottages in front the canal here inn Thrupp - mooring places become free in the morning though fill very quickly!
Getting the anchors sorted out ready for the river
Chris holds the flimsy string to close the lift bridge as we approach Duke's Lock
Getting stuck with a bottom gate not fully open - eventually I cleared a load of silt/gravel behind it and opening it a couple more inches, squeezed through
The rather low Duke's Bridge
Strange though effective ground paddle gear
Out onto a windy and colder Duke's Cut
Heading upstream on the Upper River Thames
Summer holiday activity
Being overtaken at full throttle!
Two men in a boat!
Sharing Eynsham Lock
Moored in a field above Eynsham - an open and windy spot
