I love a day-cation! It needs to be a fair drive away, 2 hours to Oxford is just right. You feel like you’ve travelled somewhere! It’s best if we don’t take a packed lunch , but we often do! We love to wander around with our cameras, and don’t usually go into museums and art galleries. But sometimes it’s nice to take in some culture.
We went to Oxford for the day yesterday to spend the day with Nicholas. We just love the walk into the city centre along the river! All the Oxford colleges have their rowing clubs here
These pictures are taken minutes from the city centre!
We went to the Pitt Rivers museum, full of old bones! Here’s an iguanadon:
And a mother and baby elephant:
The architecture was lovely too. Then we went to the Ashmolean museum, where we had lunch and wandered round a bit. Some fabulous paintings!
Maurice fettled Nicholas’s bike (which is my old bike after his was stolen)
We took Nicholas out for dinner and didn’t leave Oxford until 8pm, arriving home about 10pm, a lovely day-cation!
