Ridiculous

At Sandford Lock, a group of (drunken) Sloanes on a dayboat said "narrowboats should be on the canals, not the thames".

When we arrived at Abingdon, it resembled Gibraltar harbour. Stuffed, wall to wall with ostentatious wealth boats. Huge blocks of white plastic Med cruiser, with brand new gleaming shiny shiny white fenders that have obviously never been out of their fender socks for more than 24 hours.

Luckily, we did manage to find a mooring. Very close to the bridge. But it was somewhere to tie up for the night, and we were grateful for it.
