We made good progress today, arriving at Reading we encountered a group of yoofs at a lock who were most interested in the boat and Jade our cat, they were quite respectful and helped a little, opening the gates. At the lock in the centre of town were a couple of ‘rough sleepers’ who were also quite pleasant, one of whom had been a lockkeeper. It was quite strange travelling through the town centre shopping area, its quite ‘wiggly’ so has one way traffic with traffic lights as well!!
We continued through our first EA lock, Blakes and are now moored up on the Thames outside Tescos! Just going to have a Tescos curry to celebrate.
