The Thames: Dorchester-on-Thames

The sun sets along the river at Dorchester-on-Thame

A short ways from the Thames, Dorchester has loads of history. Long ago the Romans occupied the area but they were by no means the first to live near this bend in the river. Today the town is dominated by it’s interesting abbey. For us a not quite convenient mooring on the bank was a good place to spend the night. Gigi always likes place with nice large green fields just off the deck.  A happy dog is a happy barge.

If I bring the ball back you'll just throw it again.

There are many pillboxes like this one along the Thames.
