About Me

70 now and our five wonderful years aboard our narrowboat Skyy seem along time ago. Jacquie, allowed me to build my replica three wheeler kit car, which was a great success. Now it's time to start on a bigger project and that is to make a good Triumph Stag even better, here goes.

The day was much better than promised, so whilst the girls walked Stanley into Eynsham, for supplies, Phil and I cruised down to the lock, filled the water tank, moored up and walked into town to join them for coffee, Stanley had already caught the eye of the young lady, who ran the coffee shop, who had made a special allowance for him to sit in the corner.

We cruised on towards Oxford, leaving the Thames at Duke’s Cut, this way P & L would experience both, lock keeper operated river locks and DIY canal locks and lift bridges, as last time P & L were with us, we were on the lock free Ashby Canal.

We moored just before the pretty Isis Bridge & lock, which was five minutes walk from the Oxford railway station, very convenient as Jacquie would be jumping ship early tomorrow morning for a girlie day down South. Before that we gave P & L a conducted tour of Oxford, based on our extensive knowledge gleaned from our wanderings around the City last week. We arrived back on SKYY just before the rain started.
