Transatlantic Travels

Following a request made through the website we made contact with two sisters the USA. They were from Minneasota and San Diego and use their Summer vacation to meet up and travel the world. This year they chose an 18 day trip aboard the narrow boat “Hertford” hired from College Cruisers in Jericho, Oxford and travelling north on The Oxford Canal towards Stratford on Avon. Although we couldn’t provide them with any information about local music events on their journey we were able to visit the boat yard and “sing them off” on a gloriously sunny day. Lets hope the rest of the journey is blessed with such good weather. Our day began with a lunchtime meal with wives and other halves followed by three songs vaguely suited to the occasion. After wishing them a safe onward journey we adjourned to the local hostelry “ The Olde Bookbinders” for a drink with their very generous tip.
