Still moored above Osney lock.

Today has been the day many boaters have been looking forward to for a very long time. The red boards are coming down to be replaced with yellow boards. Needless to say the flow of boats through here today has been fairly constant. We have had about 15 boats going up river and only 6 going down. The latter were really flying as they went through here.

Mid morning we went to the railway station to meet our guests, Alan and Joy Moore from the NZMCA who are joining us for a trip to Rugby. After getting them settled on board we went up town to buy some fresh milk, fruit and vegetables.

The rest of the day was spent adjusting mooring ropes, tidying up and checking everything in the engine hole ready for cruising tomorrow.

We have enjoyed our enforced stay here in Oxford and made many new friends but we are looking forward to moving on to new territory and a change of scenery by the end of the month.
