Walking back beside the Thames at Culham Reach we saw rowing boats ready for the next effort, Canada Geese, and fishermen. There was a cool wind and occasional showers.
The rowers came past encouraged by the cox who said ‘half way’. After that the path got muddy.
The river itself was a muddle of reflections and looked bluer than the sky.
Back in Abingdon, the bells of St Helen’s were sounding the 70th anniversary.
