Sonning

We're at Sonning, just outside of Reading. Moored up in front of two other narrowboats, and close to the bridge.

Our mooring at SonningYesterday, because our battery levels & food supplies were getting low, we went back to Henley. The journey upstream from there was quite stressful, because we were bumrushed at every lock, the temperature was baking, and we couldn't find anywhere to stop... at all. So we've declared today, "a sunday", and the intention is to have a nice relaxing day.
