Henley to Weybridge

Henley getting ready for The Rewind Festival on Temple Island meadow

We have never noticed this hill top building before. Maybe the surrounding trees have been lowered

This home which is after the river bend at Quarry Wood below Marlow lock has been work in progress for a few years looked to be finally completed.
No! still more to do.

Nuneaton & I think Brighton breasted up going up stream at Bourne End
Had quick chats on the move with George & Carol at Medmenham and Ken at Marlow lock  we also passed Sue & Vic's boat in Cliveden deep but as it was 06:45 we thought it best not to knock.


The new homes finished on the Skindles Hotel site near Maidenhead bridge

Stopped at Windsor, it's always nice watching all the people on and around the water enjoying themselves. In the evening we had an excellent meal in the Two Brewers with friends.

The next day we had a short cruise to Runnymede, the Egham towpath visitor moorings were empty when we pulled in, within 15 minutes three more narrowboats and a couple of cruisers joined us.

The same thing at the Weybridge moorings, these new NSL signs (used to be NCP) are freeing up moorings for the visiting boater who only wants to stay a day or two.

Glyn and Christine came to visit us and we retired to the Old Crown for beer and tea while we waited for Dot and Gordon coming from the other end of the Thames to join us.. By the time they arrived the mooring was full so they snuggled Ewn Ha CUL on to FL's starboard bow.

In the morning after a visit to the Weybridge shops we cast of for the River Wey where we bought transit licenses  for £6.75 including a 10% reduction for National Trust membership. This will get us to the Basingstoke canal where will we will spend ten days exploring a new waterway.
