Going to Reading


Miles 11.4 Locks 3
It was raining when I woke up this morning so I turned over and tucked myself in for another hour and I suddenly realised that rain on the moorings at Goring = mud splatters all down the side of the boat. The rain had stopped by the time we were ready to set off so we made our way to Beal Park and washed down the side of the boat and then cruised on, with a brief pause for lunch at Mapledurham, to Reading. After a quick visit to Tesco and a visit from Columbus’s crew we walked into the town centre. The Riverside complex of coffee shops and restaurants is fantastic. So much choice. Had a call from the crew of Kestral who have arrived at Goring. Today’s pictures had to be the Boathouse complete with swimming pool and yes its own helicopter.
