On our Wey to Windsor

We left early this morning and pointed Derwent6 into the sunrise, with the mist on the water. We passed the ruined abbey in the field at Papercourt which looked beautiful with the sun on it. After a 'tip off' from Carol & George on nb Rock & Roll, we spotted this boat with our surname on it, does anyone in the family have any clues?
We took in the wonderful scenery of the Wey at Mill lock with our bacon rolls in hand, and soon reached Thames lock where the locky was waiting for us. We then entered the Thames again with clear blue skies and turned into Weybridge lock. As we opened up the throttle on Derwent6 we were surprised to see one of our cushions go floating by us! It had blown out of the cratch and into the river. After a bit of reversing we managed to retrieve it.
We then pressed on through Stains and then onto Runnymede, it was glorious in the sunshine, with the planes and swans flying low overhead.
Al got a few loads of washing done on the way. The traffic going up didn't seem that bad, but it did appear busy going downstream. We made good time and managed to get on our free mooring at Windsor. We can't get telly here, so it will be a DVD tonight.
