Yesterday morning was so warm and sunny, we were meeting J for a late breakfast and in celebration of the final of his finals. His student days are over,and real life begins! We breakfasted in one of the cafes in the covered market then J took us to the University Parks.
Such lovely areas of planting, woodland, cricket pitch, croquet lawn, lakes and the river Cherwell running through.
Keble College just outside the park gates.
Anyone know what this is? Waxy ivy like leaves, soft green thorns, wide spaced petals.
Science departments for the University.
Outside the Randolph Hotel this beautiful TR3a was sitting, bonnet up, cooling down.
Its owner was inside the hotel buying a bottle of water to add to the radiator. I hope it appreciated the mountain spring water that was poured in.
We appreciated seeing this lovely car, in very good condition for a 50 year old! (or thereabouts)
On the way back to Tacet, we saw this building close what would have been the old basin at the end of the Oxford Canal on Hythe Bridge Street. It is now a Thai restaurant but originally it was the Boatman’s Mission building.
It was time to leave Oxford, say goodbye to our boy, and move on up the canal. It won’t be long before we are back, we have a graduation ceremony to attend next month.
