Sonning to Goring

A hazy start to the day, we have the river to ourselves as we head towards Reading. A couple of stop off's before we get to Caversham lock, first Tesco for supplies followed by Better Boating for gas. That done we were through the lock.

This Reading boat house matches anything in Henley.

This one, not so much but still a nice place to have breakfast.
Tesco mooring residents.

Put the outlaw to work today.

 We were joined by nb Kalamazoo in Mapledurham and Whitchurch locks. It has been a scorcher  today so plenty of water and sun screen was supplied to the crew.

Colourful Kalamazoo.

Goring lock.We owned a Princess 32 like this one.

St Thomas of Canterbury.
In the afternoon Sue and I walked over the bridge to the Swan @ Streatley for an ice cold cider in the shade overlooking the weir stream. We have kept the curtains closed today to stop some of the suns power entering the boat but it's still clammy inside FL.....we shouldn't complain it hasn't been a very good summer so far.
