No, not us!
... but this small cruiser left the marina today. The river Thames is currently on orange boards ... stream decreasing (navigate with care) but some of the reaches above and below Hambleden are on red boards, so I hope he's not going too far.
Later in the day I took myself off for a walk ...
... first round the marina as I could see from Still Rockin' that the crane was being moved and I wondered if the small boats currently on the grass were being put into the water, but actually they had just moved the crane out of the way.
Two work boats moored here, one of them has the 'things' (?) that reach down to the river bed to hold the boat steady whilst working from the vessel ...
... and there's two pontoons with more plant on them - I wondered what they were doing or having done.
I continued my walk and had to wait at the lock for this trip boat to go through heading for Marlow for the Easter weekend. They may do a brisk business of sheltering visitors from the forecasted rain!
I enjoyed stretching my legs on the walk today noticing the bright yellow pussy willow in the sunshine
... and the white blossom in the woods.
