It's Sunday, let's have lunch

It was a cloudy start to the day but we were still up early. We had got a phone call yesterday from Bernie, Sarah and Hannah and they were paying us a visit as we were only a hour away, so we had some breakfast and waited till they arrived.

They got to us at around midday and we had a chat in the cratch before we walked down to the pub for a Sunday lunch. The food can be well recommended in the Thames Court and we had a lovely spot overlooking the river. We watched all the posh boats going past and could have spent the rest of the day people watching in the pub. We walked off lunch and got back to Derwent6 at around 3.00pm for a coffee. As the sun was out, it was a good time to go out for a short cruise between locks, to look at all the houses around here. We then moored up and after more coffees they left at around 7.30pm. Thanks for a lovely day guys!!!

Del then walked up to see if the water point was working while Al started a new book as the sunset.

Thanks Sue! The lockie told us about it as we went through Chertsey lock, so we stopped to see it at Staines, pics to follow. Just like you we are loving the Thames, you are a bit ahead of us but never know we might catch up....
