Weekend in Abingdon
The bank is slightly high here downstream of the bridge but manageable. Lots of meadow for Barney
Afterwards we repaired to Annie's on the Waterfront. This is the same people who run Annie's cafe at Thrupp. They only opened two weeks ago in the building on the waterfront where there used to be a chandlers. Great service and breakfast.
We had still not solved the aerial problems and were having to take a direct feed from the aerial through door and window (door for the front and window for the back). With the weather turning colder I was none too happy with the window above my head permanently open.. This spurred me on to make yet more phone calls trying to find an aerial engineer to solve the problem.
To cut a very long saga short we were visited by Brian from Aerial Solutions on Saturday afternoon. What a star!! Faulty connections were the problem, all now fixed and at a very reasonable price. We can recommend him if anyone has similar problems.
Sunday we went to St Helens Church. The Sunday morning Eucharist was also welcoming the Mayoral party. It is heritage weekend here in Abingdon. Various events taking place and lots of historic building open and free. James and Hazel with NB Gabriel are here and kindly brought us a brochure of everything going on.
Layover another day tomorrow as the forecast is less than pleasing. Oxford beckons on Tuesday.
