On Friday we moved form Thatcham to Woolhampton, planning to stay until Sunday morning. After leaving the phone on the boat while we walked into the village on Saturday morning, we returned to find a text from friends Richard and Chrissie Burridge (ex Ownerships nb Kinver) to say they were on their way to meet us in their newly acquired narrowboat which they have re-named Steliskir (after daughters Stephanie, Lisa and Kirsty)
We said goodbye on Sunday morning, Richard and Chrissie to return to their mooring at Frouds Bridge Marina, and ultimately, work on Monday. Hard luck both!! It was lovely to see you and your new boat, we wish you many happy hours aboard.
We continued on almost to Theale, where we found moorings for the night, beside a lovely lake, with just the towpath in between the river and the lake
We continued on to Reading on Monday. We all felt a little sad to be leaving the K & A, a sort of ‘last day of holiday’ feeling. We had achieved what we set out to do, but with more adventures ahead of us the feeling soon went away.
We turned back onto the Thames and made our way to the moorings beside Tesco for a big shop, and stayed the night.
