Oru Kayak Adventures: Oxford to Day’s Lock

After waiting for rush hour to finish, I headed off on the train to London Victoria station from where I hailed a black cab which took me over to Paddington. At Paddington, I picked up a rather busy GWR train to Oxford. I arrived into Oxford in the early afternoon and after a short detour following a wrong turning I promptly headed down to East Street to start the next leg of my journey along the River Thames. I assembled my kayak and set off from exactly the same spot from where I finished my Cricklade to Oxford trip three months earlier.

I stopped of lunch and a soft drink at the King Arms in Sandford-upon-Thames before continuing downstream.

The day had a light rain finish as I bedded down (wrapped in my Basha) for the night near Day’s Lock. The total distance for the day was 28Km.
