Dorchester to Goring

What a difference a bit of sun showing in the sky makes to the day. Yesterday we hunkered down as the rain showers kept coming, today all is well with the world, we move into Days lock an hour before the lockie is due. 

Wide stretches on this part of the river.
 With sun warming us we can cruise and drink in the vistas. Benson was on self service and Sue did the necessary for the assembled boats. A huge aircraft carrier type hire boat would have to wait for the next locking. Through Wallingford and onto Goring where we find a good mooring just before midday.
