Under Instruction

Today we had the benefit of my colleague Keith’s expert guidance. David, my boss, scared us (Joy) by saying how difficult Woolhampton lock was, because of the strong current coming in from the River Kennet so we enlisted Keith’s help who met us at Newbury and travelled down with us to Woolhampton, in the event navigating the lock and swing bridge was a bit of an anticlimax due to our skillful pilot, but we celebrated with a pint at the Rowbarge, Keith caught the train back to Newbury and we continued on to Aldermaston, which had the most horrendously heavy gates one of which it took three of us to move. We moored up this evening and enjoyed a lasagne expertly produced by Chris(sy) and a rhubarb crumble by Joy.. I contributed by doing the washing up 🙂
