Thames navigable end


St Johns lock with Lechlade 'duel spires' in the distance
I took the above photo while we waited for the lockie to open the gates, I don't know how but St Laurence church has gained another spire -  in this photo at least.

Not long after mooring up I went to the aide of a fellow boater who's vessel had become untied, the gusting wind blew the boat across the river, a trailing stern line caught in the prop when he started the engine.  I soon had him against the bank with a centre line while he tied up properly.

Today we have stayed put, the wind and rain the met. office was promising never materialised. We went to the local medical centre to sort out a prescription, on the way back Sue wanted to pick up some bait but the tackle shop closed down 18 months ago, oh dear we will have to find another supplier quickly as Sue is starting to show withdrawal symptoms.
