We pulled pins by 7am thinking that it might be a bit cooler traveling at that time of the morning but we hadn't banked on the humidity.
|Clock shows 7.08am|
|Newbury lock. River flows in from the left so again a bit of throttle was needed|
|By Newbury lock.|
|The ground paddle (no longer in use)|
Again others had the same idea, leaving early, and Heather had a bit of problem at West Mill swing bridge after Newbury lock. Dave was already starting to open the bridge when another boat appeared also wanting to go through. The sun being so low the lady in the other boat hadn't seen Heather hovering in the middle and a few moments of indecision as to who should go through ensued. In the end all was sorted with Heather going first.
|Sun too low for her to see.|
|More early risers. I think I recognice the boat GO FOR IT. Didn't they used to blog??|
|Finally a decent towpath mooring.|
|Scarlet Tiger Moth|
|This is a Stoat honest. Just a very bad photo.|
|Our boat spider. Good for catching those pesky flies so quite happy for it to stay.|
