|It was because of these lads on the boards that we noticed the rainbow.|
And I suppose the geese did us a favour. On looking out of the side hatch I was as startled as this bullock to see each other! If it wasn't for the bank being eroded at that spot I'm sure he would have poked his nose in for a titbit.
With more and more turning up we pulled pins earlier then anticipated. I was running short on bait and Ian found a tackle shop in Wallingford. Biggest problem was, would we find a mooring?? By the highest bit of wall possible a space big enough for us to fit. Ian had to come in at such an angle that the nose button fender got well and truly dislodged as it hit the wall. For me to get onto the bank I had to belly flop onto the grass, roll over and heave my bulk upwards. Not a pretty sight I can tell you. And it was all for nothing as the so called tackle shop had no bait!!!!

Not feeling to good today so Ian said lets stop early. Think I might be going down with a summer cold so I didn't need much persuasion. We found another lovely secluded mooring but once again the banks are a bit high. With a BBQ for tonight it's going to be interesting getting off.
