Another bright but cold day in Oxford, perfect for going outside (well bundled-up, of course) and looking for signs of spring. We walked with Megan along the river, and passed a lovely “tuxedo” cat sitting on a rail watching the passers-by.
We also saw a lovely swan who followed us for some time until he found his mate.
