On a mission

We left our Bourne End mooring yesterday morning winding (turning) to retrace our steps upstream).  We've been here a week to receive our visitors and to wait for the Webasto spare part to be delivered and fitted and you'll be pleased to hear that all is now up and running nicely once again.
We were soon approaching Marlow Lock the first of three today
A wonderful view of Marlow weir, bridge and beautiful church
Other boats are on the move too
... or is this one the exception? It's in exactly the same place as it was when we left over a week ago.  Of course I may be wrong but I don't think so.
Lock number two, Temple Lock
... where there are boats exiting so we don't have to wait
Less than ¼ mile and we're at Hurley Lock where we use the services at the top before continuing through the narrow channel

... where 'sod's law' says that other boats will be met on the bends!
Always a good picture ... Mednemham Abbey
... and we're very soon in another of our very favourite moorings on Mednemham meadow for the Bank Holiday weekend
I hope this good weather lasts a bit longer and by the looks of this stunning sunset tomorrow will be just as good.

Ah, Carol, I've missed your blog while I've been on our 'farathon'. You make me want to haul the Hennie Ha over tomthe Thames! How beautiful it all is there. I shall be scrolling down your other posts in a Still Rockin fest over the next few days!
