Baking

Had to pull the pins, and set off in a hurry this morning, as the two 'Salters Steamers' tripboats (Goring and Wargrave) were blocking the river, & traffic was backed up downstream. Not our fault, as we were on a proper mooring spot. But, we would have been the ones to get it in the neck from irate boaters unable to proceed.

Cruised 200 yards up the river, and got ourselves a really nice place, which had only just been vacated. Even on this short journey, another narrowboater tried to cut us up, and sneak themselves in before us. "You wouldn't even do that in Tescos", said Sheena.

The sun is baking hot. So, I guess everybody's tempers are a bit frayed.
