In Oxford with a new camera!

Tuesday, 26th May 2015

I had such fun with my new camera today!  We walked into Oxford again and after coffee and croissants at the Grand Cafe, we walked on to the Botanical Gardens which were delightful and perfect for practising picture taking!

We stayed in Oxford for the day (I did a little shopping!) and then we had dinner with the middle son and his lovely lady.  Having missed the bus back to the flat, we decided to walk home as well!  The feet are sore and we’re a bit weary after all that, so here are some pictures with few words (you’ll be glad to know I haven’t put all 145 pictures in!!)

Enjoy
