Family day in Oxford

Adrian and Sasha had come over from Australia on a flying visit, taking in as many friends and relatives as possible in the time available.
They had always wanted a trip on the canal boat, so this was organised in advance - we would all come to Constance for the day. Constance was moored just below Lock 43 (Kidlington Green Lock) so we all went to Yarnton Lane to park.
We were joined by Adrian & Sasha and David & Emma so we were a party of seven.
We set off down through Duke's Lock and all the way down to Hythe Bridge Street. Emma, who knows Oxford well, took the party on a whistle stop tour of 'Historic Oxford' whilst I turned Constance around ready for the return journey.
We ended up back near Kidlington, not too far from our respective cars and had a meal on board. It was a bit of a squeeze getting seven around the dinner table but we managed, it was 'cosy'. I was lovely to have the whole family together for the day.
