An even windier day on the Thames

So we stayed put!!!!
The mooring is congenial, no time limits, plenty of space for Barney, nearby Dorchester-on-Thames has a small shop, two pubs and a post office.  It also has Dorchester Abbey which we visited when we went down the Thames earlier this year.  The village is about a mile away but it made a good walk in between showers this morning.
The two hotel boats moored behind us last night left about 9.30 but rather them than me in the wind........I looked up their schedule and they aim to be in Oxford on Thursday.  We have been joined by 3 other boats in our field this evening.
We hope the wind will have abated a little tomorrow so we can get up to Abingdon.
