The day started well today, we were away by 8 as we wanted to be in Henley to meet Giles at lunch time. Not a soul around, although a lady was awake on a boat in front of us and commented on how quiet we were....

Geoff at the upper control panel with Barney in attendance
Lock keeper not on duty until 9am
|This is him overtaking us after we had left the lock|
He then decided to go at a very slow pace!!!
|This one will do for me.|
|This is what was on offer for £5 a night|
As we walked into Henley to meet Giles, Guess who was moored a few boats along! In the spirit of entente cordiale Geoff went up to the man and shook his hands and apologised for the morning incident, although I am not sure we had anything to apologise for.....I think I might have forgiven him if he had been gracious about it but he kept banging on about how he knew we boaters didn't like sharing with hire boats! Ah well tomorrow is another day and I guess life is too short.
