Below the next lock on, Copse Lock, we had our first meeting with the River Kennet since early June.
First article on the agenda was a visit to the local Halford's emporium. Jill said that having a bottle brush projecting from the roof was an embarrassment, even my claim that it showed a brilliant touch of improvisation was met with scorn and my offer to replace it with a convenient balloon whisk was rejected out of hand.
Looking at the weather forecast it looks like it will be thermals and waterproofs tomorrow.
