Travel Tuesday: A Rare Sunny Autumn Day in Oxford

Last week my wife and I were up in Oxford. She had to give a colloquium at the university and I did some research at the Bodleian Library. It being November, of course it was cloudy and rainy almost every day. For the first few hours of our first day, however, the sun shone and the city was beautiful. We took the opportunity to walk through Christchurch Meadows, a stretch of land owned by one of the historic colleges on the river. Along this part of the river the various colleges keep their boat houses and rowing teams practice in the water. The photos are all hers. Enjoy!

Sean--Your wife takes great photos. The one of the rowers is especially beautiful.

Soon, these sunny days are going to be few and far between, I'm afraid. I'm glad you got to enjoy that one...

She got some good ones. Oxford is a cool town. So many great looking buildings. Glad it didn't rain on you all the time.
