Swan Upping

 Before we left this morning I spent 20 mins down the  weed hatch removing fishing line and burgee from the propeller.

 The Bounty this was just a shack open only at weekends selling warm beer last time we were here, aparently that burnt down some years ago and now it's grown into a very popular eating establishment even the patio and garden tables are reserved after 1830hrs!

Cliveden estate  gardens lead down to the Thames, Cliveden House was purported to of played a part in the  spy scandal known as the Profumo affair .

The pageant that is Swan Upping  in progress  for Her Majesty followed by a film crew aboard Argonaut.



Peace is a shady spot  and a Kindle.

The Swan uppers passed our mooring for tonight among the trees at Cliveden,  I'll expect a knock on the door for a mooring fee as this land is run by the National Trust.
