Dorney lake.

Clear and calm at 08:00.

Through Cookham lock the river to port is steep and wooded with Cliveden House peeping over the canopy of leaves.
Klara and Cliveden House.

 After Boulters lock and Maidenhead Bridge there are some of the best riverside residences along the Thames

Extra crew is always handy.

We moored adjacent to Dorney Lakes, the bankside chairs came out, drinks and towpath tapas came from the two galley's. After chilling for an hour or two we had a oblong walk around the lake. there were lots of crews being coached by cyclists with megaphones.

 Dorney Lakes looking back to the club house.
This sculpture represents the 500,000,000,000 tons of gravel extracted to make Dorney lake
