The tide is high at five thiry pm so down to the mooring at 2.45 we go soon the binnie is ready and off we go

The plan is to go through Teddington meet with Paul and les at the Boaters in kingston head on up to thames ditton and back via the Boaters for a quick drink before heading back to Isleworth

Although this might not seem like a large distance geographically when you are travelling at slow speeds it takes time and we have to make sure that we are bac at the mooring before the tide is too low to get in

Through the drawlock at richond and

Then back to the boaters for a quick drink before going back although uneventful we did encounter some old fossils on a pontoon waiting for a ferry ranting and shouting well do they go for a pleasant day out or do they go out for some river rage ?

Lovely pictures, thanks for sharing them.
We have enjoyed a few holidays on the Thames, in a hired cruiser, and loved it!!
