Four Candles


IMG_0347Our last day in Oxford and Ann chose The Four Candles which just happens to be a Wetherspoons for our lunch. The name comes from the two Ronnie's famous sketch about four Candles and fork handles.

IMG_0352After lunch we had a right result with a visit to the Ashmolean museum which just happens to be free. The heavens decided to open so it was just perfick (as Ann would say) for few hours.

IMG_0356It was absolutely amazing with artefacts from all over the world. The only problem was that we didn't have enough time to see everything and another visit at a later date will be necessary.

IMG_0357We saw this displayed in the Museum and what i want to know is what's this got to do with me Carolyn ???????.

The 48 hour moorings in Oxford are just not long enough to see everything this city has to offer. I fully understand if they were 7 or 14 day moorings the chances of getting a good mooring would be very difficult. We will just have to hope that when we head back this way later in the summer we can spend some more quality time here.

Tomorrow is the big day when we drop down Isis lock and then on to the river Thames. I have been looking forward to this for so long and i know i will not be disappointed.

  1. We have moored quite happily on the Thames, just downstream of Folly Bridge on several occasions, overlooking Christ Church Meadow. Access to the city is convenient if you'd like more time to explore. nb Tiggy
