Reading to Henley on Thames

Another glorious morning saw us leaving the less than salubrious surroundings of Reading, heading downstream on the Thames for London.

There is a distinct smell in the air around here, I think it’s called ‘MONEY’!!

We have ended up at Henley on Thames, further than we planned to go today as moorings were very scarce between Reading and here, but, as it turns out, well worth the wait, and a bargain for this area at £6 a night.  We are watching preparations for the Regatta, due to start on 30th June – good job we will be well away by then.

We will stay here tomorrow, we have a good satellite picture and we must get our dose of humiliation watching England play!!  Marlow and a visit by Emma and our granddaughters is planned for Thursday.
