Hampton Court to Staines

Miles 13 locks 5
This is what greeted us as we came up Molesey Lock this morning. All the locks we will go through are keeper operated and all we will have to do is pass up a rope before the gates are closed and the paddles lifted. The busiest by far today was Shepperton where we waited about 30 minutes as 14 craft of various sizes went up before us.
We cruised on to Staines our planned stopping place for tonight and eventually moored as shown , not before we had tried two other locations. One was too shallow the other we were right up against Staines road bridge so when the better moorings became available when the boats out for the weekend had gone off to their marinas we moved to our final place.
