I was just sitting in fabulous sunshine at Marlow, with the bridge and the Church just downstream of us, thinking what a great 5 or 6 weeks we have had out on the river watching the world go by. Nicola has had a couple of trips home for appointments and to check her son’s had managed to keep the house in some sort of order. I, though, have not left the boat other than shopping, the odd pub and restaurant and a walk with Alfie.
We have basically travelled from Shepperton to Wallingford and back, a trip that would take around 2 hours in a car, and has taken by the time we get back to home, around 2 months on the barge. Fabulous!
The boat has behaved wonderfully and we seem to have snagged everything before our next great adventure – taking her across the English Channel in September.
By way of a change, here are some captioned photos of some of the things that have caught our eye.
