7:45 this morning at Henley - it looks like is going to be a good day
George reverses out from our mooring
... across the river so that we can pass Rod Eyot on the right
Looking back upstream towards Marsh Lock
... but today we're going downstream once more
Looking back at Henley, this is the last time we'll visit by water this year
Hambleden Lock was on self service
The sun's reflection on the water makes steering a bit difficult
10 o'clock and there's the first of just two boat we've seen on the move today here at Hurley Lock after we'd used the services
Sharp left into Temple Lock which was also unmanned today
... and we're back in Marlow again, but we're not stopping today
The lock keeper at Marlow has already seen us approaching and has the gates open for us to enter
... and it's here that we see the second and last boat on the move in four hours!
Approaching Cookam and we can see a meadow mooring ahead
The bank is a bit high but it will do for us tonight.
There are really good views from here
... and downstream
Off for a walk ... we watched the lock keeper blowing all the leaves from around the lock into the river ... so that's what we'll have to contend with tomorrow when we come this way
Below Cookam weir
Barriers to prevent vessels from entering the weir stream
... and we're back to Marsh Meadow
... where Still Rockin' is moored.
... and to round off a great day, a very pretty sunset taken a few minutes ago.
We have really enjoyed today, the weather has been sunny but with a cold wind which at times was gusting up to 32mph but we were well wrapped up and warm. I never get bored of being on the deck as we cruise watching the world go by, especially on a day like today.
