On the Road
Longtime OTC readers, David and Laurie Norcross are faithful about taking the Crier on their adventures both at home and abroad. Both of these photos were taken in Oxford…Laurie’s was in Oxford, England on one of their many excursions across the pond before the pandemic kicked in. She is standing outside The Eagle & Child Pub in Oxford known by its devoted patrons as “the Bird and the Baby”. The pub was the liquid hangout of The Inklings author CS Lewis and Lord the Rings author JRR Tolkien among other literary types. David was spotted on the Oxford-Bellview Ferry located in the lessor known Oxford, Maryland. This ferry, however, is the oldest known privately owned ferry route having been established in 1683.
