Clifton Lock, River Thames
After an afternoon and night of rain, the top of the boat was covered with horse chestnut petal.
An early start as the weather was looking good, and we were on the Thames by 0615.
Some boating scumbags left this mess on one of the Thames islands.
It was a lovely trip, got to ogle lots of lovely houses and even lovelier boat houses.
Saw a field of strange sheep!
Just coming out of Clifton Hampden Lock at 2pm we noticed new 24 hr moorings and dived in. They were a bit expensive at £8.70 a night, but David was shattered and Abingdon seemed an age away.
We managed to moor up just before the rain started again.
Another simple card (I made lots for a shop in Edinburgh and this is one). The pocket watch is die cut and the sentiment was done on the computer and matted onto gold card.
