We set off at 06:00, yes 6am, Henley Regatta starts today, so setting off early would ensure we would miss any traffic queuing at Marsh and Hambledon locks - it also gave me a chance to wake the noisy oik that moored behind us last night.
It was a little misty as we set off but the sun soon broke through and it was warm for the rest of the day. We cruised a total of 20 miles and 8 locks to moor at Boveney, we didn't go through Boveney lock in case Windsor was stuffed full of boats, a usual occurrence on summer weekends.
I had a package to collect from Windsor post office, it's a two hour return trip on foot from the mooring, unfortunately I was 8 minutes late getting to the correct collection point - I wasted 20 minutes queueing at the PO counter. It was very hot so a glass of cold cider was had at the Watermans Arms. We will have to stay till Monday morning when the depo opens again.
