Boat Blog: Autumn Odyssey Day 13

Posted by indigodream on 22 November, 2012

Rewind to Friday 5th October

Reading (Thames and Kennet Marina) t0 Henley

Persisting!

I confess that I wasn’t keen to cruise today – I wanted to minimise Lou’s time on the boat and……..I’d seen the atrocious weather forecast 🙂

However, we had Richard’s family joining us in Marlow on Saturday morning, and Richard was reluctant to change the plans, so he single-handed from Reading to Henley. It was a brave move because the river was on the rise after a week of solid rainfall. He took Ollie with him for company, though the rain meant that Ollie couldn’t occupy his favourite spot on deck.

They didn’t have a bad start to the day, but later on it persisted down – Ollie, who had been so keen to have an adventure, was confined inside out of the rain; in the meantime, Richard was confined outside in the rain. When I spoke to Richard later, I’d have been hard pressed to work out which of the boys was more despondent!

This was our visitor pontoon at the Thames and Kennet Marina – I’d lobby for the dog-owner who allowed this to happen to be evicted!
