sunday 1st of may

start of another month and what a windy start to the month we are having , at the moment we are moored on the River Thames at cookham slowly making our way down to Brentford ,if any one knows any good mooring on the Thames please let us know , someone told me it would be easy going down the Thames with the flow yea right they forgot to tell me about the wind in places it is like we are going backwards
and the further down the Thames we go the bigger the cruiser get and there are a lot about this weekend .

Going back to my theme you can get anything on the water ways we saw this Ice cream boat about Hurley lock yesterday
also on the River yesterday we saw the Thames steamer  lovely site
