Started the day (Friday 27th at 8:30) with the sun streaming through the kitchen window at our mooring in Marlow ...

and were soon pulling away and saying cheerio once again to Marlow
Approaching Temple Lock I can see narrowboat Dogma but curtains are still closed so we weren't able to say hello to Sheena and Ken.

With all the heavy rain the river is a little higher than it has been but way off yet of its 'normal' height as seen here at Temple.
Temple Lock cut with the weir on the right

and beyond the top gates bordered with a copse belonging to the Harleyford Estate
SM Alaska which we saw in steam on Thursday of last week

Still Rockin' waiting to come into Hurley Lock next ...

from where I can see the hotel boat Magna Carta ... where for approximately £4,000 two people can share a cabin for six nights onboard for a River Thames cruise.

An hour and a half after setting off we're approaching that Abbey ...
and our mooring for the weekend ... it's good to be back on Medmenham meadow ... it's so quiet here.
Magna Carta passing us later in the afternoon
and a lone sailing boat fortunately with an outboard motor to get him out of trouble when the wind wasn't playing fair and he was about to hit us!
The wind has been forceful and the rain torrential at times this afternoon
and the sun is still pouring in at the kitchen window at ¼ to 6.
No apologies for another glorious sunset.
