Little Wittenham - Abingdon

Underway from our peaceful overnight mooring at 08:00, there is still a chilly  northerly wind to keep our fleeces in place. We were expecting a visitor so decided Abingdon would be a convenient stopping point. FL was moored on the park visitor moorings before the bridge.

Reading Blue coat school kids were doing a 35 mile ten lock sponsored row, their headmaster was running the distance.

Our good friend Ray who is half the crew and soon to be ex owners of NB Ferndale came to visit bearing gifts, I like this type of visitor. After a cup of tea and catch up on board we went to the Nag's Head for lunch. Ray will be returning home to Diane and Australia soon, we will be left with fond memories of all the zany times we have spent together. We are going to miss them not being on the cut but will stay in touch.  

Ray & Diane
