I finally got the picture I’ve been after - young adolescent swans running on the water strengthening their wings!
If you look closely at the photo you’ll see someone you might recognise at the controls of Goring Lock.
You may even recognise the boat emerging from the lock ...
... you should certainly know by now!
After a couple of hours of catch-up over lunch on our ‘feckin fat boat’ Maffi continues down-stream and enjoying his winter cruising.
It was good to see you again Maffi and look forward to next summer.
