Yesterday we enjoyed a family day out on the river. We went to the Trout Inn at Lechlade and hired a boat to adventure down the River Thames. Armed with our picnic basket, and swimming costumes we journeyed to the Cheese Wharf and Buscot Weir, two places listed in the Wild Swimming book, although it was too overcast, windy and cold for us to jump in!
We made do with eating our sandwiches and feeding the crusts to the swan (Ted!) on the way back! We did discover the quintessentially English village of Kelmscot just a few miles further down the road, Kelmscot Manor is where William Morris lived and is truly delightful, well worth a visit.
