The 'charming little house' where we stayed in Oxford

Today has been quite varied. We went first to the Ashmolean, after making a bit of a later start. Then we picked up sandwiches and went to an organ recital at the Merton College chapel. We ate our lunch in the garden outside the chapel, then walked to the canal and walked along for a while. After asking someone we found out where the would be some cafes and crossed a bridge to get there.

Then we walked back to the centre of town and spent some time in the marvellous Waterstones Bookshop. Then at 6:15 we went back to Merton College for a sung Evensong with the Book of Common  Prayer.

Then caught a bus part way home and after looking at lots of options chose a Lebanese restaurant. It doesn’t sound that much written here, but we have walked about 12.5 kilometres, according to the iPhone. Just getting from place to place.
