Cat Walking At Napton

We saw this lady approaching and thought it didn't look like a dog on the end of her lead...

Here he is sunning himself on our back deck

Pitt Rivers Museum - Oxford

Behind the natural history museum is the Pitt Rivers museum which is unbelievable. It's crammed full with bizarre collections from around the world. It's very difficult to negotiate round the display cabinets as they're so close together.
The museum is in line for a top museum award this year.

Natural History Museum - Oxford

Very nice old building with light and airy display galleries

Amazingly, this bear had a sign saying, "Please touch me"

Next day we moored at Thrupp and met SWMBO's uncle for lunch in The Jolly Boatman.
Would be nice to own one of these cottages but parking is a nightmare in summer.

Narrowboat Stella's Travels

This time we're travelling from Wigrams Turn Marina near Daventry to Oxford (and back).
The South Oxford canal is very rural with lots of wildlife and pretty villages.

Boat entering Somerton Deep Lock

British Airways i360 - Part 3

Views from the top
One major design flaw, in my opinion, is that the glass is curved and you get terrible reflections

They're using to tops of buildings as advertising hoardings

Looking up

Looking down with an unusual view of the West Pier

British Airways i360 - Part 2

Sorry for the delay in postings - the computer's been in 'hospital'
It's difficult to gauge the size of the i360 from the previous photos, so this is the inside which can take up to 200 people!
Luckily there were only about 80 on our flight and it still seemed to have a vast amount of room
