Onwards to Windsor

Hello again

Someone up above must have taken offence at me bragging that we were having glorious weather and got us big style yesterday.  It absolutely chucked it down and we were all soaked despite wearing full waterproofs.

We were packed into the lock when the heavens opened with a thunderstorm and there was nowhere to take shelter as we were all holding ropes while the boats descended the lock. It did brighten up later once we'd moored up in Cookham and it's been much nicer again today

We're now moored in Windsor near the castle and have been out and about this afternoon. We were in Windsor at this time last year and got drenched in a thunderstorm while we were going round the castle so I wasn't taking any chances this time and took a brolly and a rain coat!

We had a nice surprise a couple of hours ago as the Royal Barge Gloriana sailed past.  She's simply stunning!

Bye for now, see you soon.

You passed us in the rain yesterday, we’re moored at Mendmenham, I just happened to glance out of the window, sorry we missed you both even for just a wave! Well done for selling the boat so quickly and good luck with the search for another one.
