Cruising the Thames

I have had a very nice time with my Mum and Dad on their Canal boat in the UK. We had wanted to cruise the Oxford canals but first they had to get up the big Thames river to get to Oxford. Unfortunately there was a lot of water and it was rushing down too fast. They had red warnings up and we were told not to travel up the Thames. We did move a little bit, but it was sometimes a bit scarey. So in the end we stopped in Addingdon. There were some beautiful spots along the Thames on our long canal boat so I thought I would share some photos with you... here they go.

Holding the boat in the lock (more on that on my own blog - later)
Moored beside a meadow of cows in the early morning mist.
Hope all is going well at Kindergarten. It looks like Poi is having some great adventures.
