We are at the height of the summer holidays. Thursday was hot. Friday was hotter. Today, Saturday, was milder but there was sunshine.
Somebody told me the Aldi had a special offer on inflatables. On the River Thames in Abingdon people are paddling about in inflatable canoes and on paddle boards, more than ever.
There are lots of larger boats moored in the meadows above and below Abingdon Bridge this evening.
Some are moored closer to the bridge than the notices allow. Others cannot find a place.
The new owners of the Nags Head have spaced tables further apart this year, and cater for the boaters as well as town people.
