O is for Oxford

Caught the ‘Oxford Tube’ today. It’s not actually a tube but it does go to Oxford so I guess it’s not false advertising. It rained ominously on the way there and when we arrived it was bucketing it down. It cleared up in time for me to go punting. Punting is a interesting pastime. It has little of the excitement of sailing but it has a certain damp aspect to it that is similar. There weren’t too many people out on the water so I go a chance to practice punting without crashing into others. It is certified fun! I spent the rest of my time there wandering and peeking into some of the college courtyards… it looked very like Cambridge so I felt liked I’d seen it all before.
