As mentioned, we’re biding our time until the Thames is safely navigable. We found a lovely spot to spend a few days, it’s at the top of Denham Deep Lock, alongside a wooded area with pathways crisscrossing woodland, which is great for Rusty.
We’re also within easy walking distance of ‘London’s Biggest, Busiest, and Best’ car boot sale. The bad news is that the car boot’s been cancelled today! 🙁
We’ll be spending our time preparing to go on the Thames, the first thing we’ve to do is dig out our anchor; it’s been well buried under the bow. John also wants to give the engine an oil change.
Today we’ve travelled 1.5 miles.
