We got off early this morning 07:30, Dot set Abingdon lock for us and we were soon through and taking on water and disposing of the dumpables. Then it was a nice cruise through Oxford and under the Gin Palace halter that is Osney's low bridge. Port Meadows open plain is crossed to Godstow lock and it's adjacent Abbey ruin. From here the river meanders untethered until we reach Eynsham lock, our over night stay. I walked with Gordon across the lock and field to the Talbot Inn for a pre dinner Ale.
