Newbridge to Oxford

Started our return journey from Lechlade down stream, moored overnight at Newbridge. Set off from Newbridge, the weather is still being very kind, although the wind is rather cold. It was our turn for mishaps today as I got stuck on a sand bank and had to be pulled off by Rog and Pip on Windsong. The Thames is very shallow in places and we still found it extremely difficult to find moorings. We did plan to moor well before Oxford, but the first moorings available were at Osney Bridge, close to the centre of Oxford.
