We checked the forecast on Wednesday and it was rain later in the day. By the time we were ready to go it was already raining so the plan to move went out of the window.. We thought we would get the shopping instead, and first stopped by in Costa for a coffee and a panini so we weren't hungry when food shopping..
We had to go to Waitrose which is always a bit more expensive for us, but it did make a change. It did help us keep the cost down!
Loaded with ruck sacks and carrier bags we made the short trip back to Derwent6, and Al filled up the cupboards. So that was the highlight of the day because it definitely wasn't the European cup final as it was just rubbish!
On the Thursday we were up at the crack of dawn and on our way downstream on the Thames to see how far we could get before we had had enough..
We had a bit of a stretch now where we had no locks for an hour or so. Al soon had the washing machine on and came back out with some bacon butties, that's why Del married her!!!! lol
We carried on to Goring lock and again there were loads of moorings but we wanted to get a little further to make things easier tomorrow.. We ended up at Beale Park as the boat festival had been cancelled this year, and by the looks of it indefinitely. We had it all to ourselves and Tooty was in his element.. We managed to get a telly signal which used to be difficult here so we were sorted for the evening..
