Eights Week

Every year Oxford holds The Eights, which is a rowing race between all of the colleges in the University. Thousands turn out and fill the river banks. Everyone from uni students to families to older alumni. People BBQ and have parties on river boats. I love seeing all the ex-rowers in their striped sports jackets. (Think Mary Poppins, when they jump into the side walk painting and Bert is wearing that White and red striped jacket.) We had fun meandering around and watching the rowers.

P.S. We are getting very excited to go to California in just a few days!

Oh just saw how this looks on the computer sorry for the graininess I'm working out how to blog from my phone.
