Many thanks for all of the positive comments on my previous postings, much appreciated.
It was very mild with sunshine and showers and a fresh SW wind when I set out on a morning ride.
Bit of a cheat this one, I took this yesterday when I had to collect a few items from our lottie for a fencing project I’m currently doing at home. This shot catches the very wet flexible walls of our poly tunnel.
Stone and timber wall of this barn located near Radley College.
These fences and galvanised gates have been appearing all over the county for the last six months or so. Maybe the farmers spending European Union monies prior to Brexit, if it happens.
This inquisitive pair watched me whilst I shot the fence and gate.
Lovely moss and ivy encrusted dry stone field boundary in Cothill.
Much newer dry stone wall in nearby Dry Sandford.
From here it was into the wind and rain to Appleton, turning with the wind it was back to Abingdon for the lucky escape.
This is the River Thames about half a mile from where we live. The two red buoys mark the place where in the early hours of Saturday morning a car with two occupants plunged into the river after damaging the boat moored in the foreground. You may be able to see the submerged vehicle closer to the left buoy.
Both the man and woman involved were able to get out of the car and swim to shore where they dragged to safety by passers by. Both were very lucky to get out, the woman being admitted to hospital with hypothermia.
Had a great ride despite the rain at times, the last six wind assisted miles were memorable.
