On the last Thursday of May it was my Dads funeral so thank you to family and friends for supporting me at this sad time. So this weekend l find myself camping with members of the Oxford Section of the BMW Club at https://lechladeonthames.co.uk/ Which l find was really good for me on the banks of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8snY1Ltyyo Dad’s early life pre WW 2 was spent living on Warspite Road, Woolwich which when right down to the banks of the River Thames & the dock area. River Isis or River Thames? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Isis Friday afternoon time for a stroll, but first a bridge to cross.
The BMW scooter parc ferme.
Saturday am. time to find a steam boat. https://www.steamboatassociation.co.uk/
Our very own “Blue Tour Leader” Paul.
Made in Nottingham.
Seems that Dutch riders are in town.
Pauls seems very “smitten” by this AG TRIKE with its front wheel drive and side valve thumper engine.
Lets fly on a Flying Boat.
A taxing message!
Sunday time to ride north for home and seek out a famous FORD! Shilton ford used by Henry Cole to test his vehicles for WATERPROOFING! Plus used in scenes from Downton Abbey.
However to day it was a DOG WASH DAY. Bye for now from the River Isis/Thames.
P.S Just for the “Oldest man ever”
