Tuesday (31 Oct) - was cloudy with cruel wind
... as we approached Marlow Lock on self service
Still Rockin' is firmly secured on the lock landing as the fierce current from the bywash and the water pouring out of the lock pounds her broadside and full frontal while I set the lock for us to ascend.
Filling the lock once we're inside
Thames House with it's dragons on the lockside
Approaching Marlow Suspension Bridge with All Saints Church on the right
... and looking back as we leave this lovely place for the last time by water this year
Temple Lock also on self service
Although the sign says otherwise the lockie was present at Hurley where we shared the lock with a small day boat
The huge Medmenham Abbey (right) is still for sale and has an interesting past, and the house next door. If either of them was being 'given away' I'd go for the one on the left.
It was just after 1pm when we were moored up on Medmenham meadow
... with good views all round.
Although the sun tried hard to break through the clouds and there were not many patches of blue in the sky, it was a good cruise; the next but last one of 2017.
