No Problem’s new owners have shrunk her!
Nice house, nice boat!

RAF Flying Boat Refueller built in 1946 and sailed in the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant in 2012 moored near Staines
The grumpy git lock-keeper at Bell Weir Lock gave us a break today; we operated the lock on self-service while he took great pleasure (not a word that really applies to him of course!) in decapitating the daisies!

Royal Air Forces Memorial at the top of Cooper Hill, well worth a visit if you stop at Runnymede
Yay! there’s no-one moored!

… and a cracking sunset to end a really good day!
