Venturing along the nearby waterway from where we are staying, it took about an hour to walk into the Oxford City Centre. With the sun shining it was a relaxing way to travel to the city. Along the way were cyclists, joggers and others power walking along the waterway tow path.
For me, I chose to amble along not knowing just quite where I was going and hoping that I had taken the correct turn to get me into the city.
What a wonderful backyard this would be to have at your doorstep.
A different and almost romantic way to live, I passed several people who looked dressed for work alighting from their boat to walk into Oxford's City Centre.
But not all is idyllic. I have always had a romantic notion of the longboats on British waterways. However along this route were a number of long term moorings and like the one below not all were in top class condition. Some needed lots of love and care while others were loaded with their owners' tools of trade.
Almost into Oxford.
