With the year warming up and a settled almost windless day in prospect I pulled the kayak out of hibernation and dropped in at the Parish quay at Botley.
There has been a quay or hard at Botley since medieval days, known up
until the 1900's as Horsepool Wharf, these days is a delightful little
park and slipway onto the river.
I paddled up under the road bridge as far as it's possible to get, the over spill was going really well with all the recent rain, but hardly white water stuff.
