Bray Today

Wow this weather has just been fantastic.. Its been in the twenty's everyday since we have been on the Thames and long may it continue. We got up early and Del was wiping the sap and birds poo off Derwent6 like he does every morning.....a small price to pay for a great location. Yep we had the trains every half an hour and the planes landing overhead from 6.00am till 11.30pm and we could hear people having fun till the early hours, but we loved it.. As we decided to leave Neil and Pauline on n.b Waterlilly turned up, good timing, they could have our spot, another good thing about blogging.
Pauline had made us some lovely freshly made scones, bless her, and we put them on the roof with loads of melted butter in them for the journey..
Thanks guys...hope to have a longer meet up next time. We got under the low bridge and headed out onto the mighty Thames..
The weather was perfect for cruising and we had a lovely breeze in our faces..
Our main reason for moving, pumpout. Our waste tank was getting full and only had a day left so our first stop was the sanitary station.
Al walked up and got a pumpout card from the lock Keeper, a bargain at £9.00 so we got two. After bleeding it a little to get it working we were empty again.. We then had to move over to another station for water and this one was a bit tricky next to a fast flowing weir.
You get massive hoses on the Thames and it seems to fill tanks very quickly.

We then went through Bovney Lock and took a steady cruise to Bray Lock doing our washing on the way..

When we arrived at one of our favourite moorings, it was a bit over grown, but available. We slotted Derwent6 in between the trees and then tied to them.

We then got ourselves sorted for the football and Al made a lovely pork salad with apple sauce, Mmmmm with a few beers what more could a man want..
