Windsor to Hampton Court

Miles 20.9 Locks 8
Well we have made it to Hampton Court and the flower show is in full swing so as you can guess all the moorings were full including some N.B.s breasting up. Well almost, we managed to squeeze in right at the end where the inside narrow boat was shorter and the overhang of the bows of the Wide beam cruiser had enough room to take our stern. And we got in without touching. We have still got to work out our exit strategy. Due to the flower show there are about six trip boats taking passengers from the show site to the mooring jetty next to the railway station. This means that one passes almost every two minutes, hopefully the show will close soon and we will get some peace and quiet. Pictires today show one of the more novel ways we have seen to moor your boat and an example of the size of boat we are sharing locks with.
