09:25 and it’s already 30 degrees C on the roof of Rock n Roll
Geoff and Mags set of first this morning just as yet another boat got stuck on that sandbank ...
... so ‘hero’ Geoff went to the rescue with some powerful tugs and pulls ...
... and he’s free! Well done Geoff
Under Shillingford Bridge
Approaching Benson ...
... and its lovely waterfront
... and then into Benson Lock
We moored up for an hour or so at Wallingford to stock up on supplies
I bet the water’s cold, but they seem to be enjoying themselves
The Boathouse on the river at Wallingford used to have a big sign on the riverside - NO MOORING - but it’s gone now - good!
First sailing boat we’ve seen on the Thames so far
Four Red Kites kept us entranced as we cruised ...
A fantastic sight!
The Leathern Bottle was busy when we passed
Cleeve Lock ...
... and a stuning boathouse
Waiting for this big girl to exit Goring Lock ...
Looking back ...
The weir at Goring - always a superb picture
Approaching our moorings for tonight ...
Derwent 6 already moored up.
Seyella moored up just in front of Al and Del and we continued a few boat lengths down to moor near the main entrance of Beale Park.
It has been too hot for me today with tempretures up in the 30’s!
Our son and his family are visiting us tomorrow and I can’t wait!
