Chertsey

We've covered 9.71 miles today, and done 3 locks.
Old Windsor, Bell Weir and Penton Hook.

Set off late from Windsor, and enjoyed a pleasant cruise down to Chertsey, past the royal estate, Runnymede, and through Staines. We're currently tied up on the 24 moorings by Chertsey lock. The lock keeper said "You got here after 7pm, didn't you?". And "You're around the bend, I can't see you". So, he didn't charge us £8. Or anything at all. Nice one, Mr. Lock Keeper. Cheers!

Took Sumo for a walk underneath the M3 bridge (not nice), where we found Laleham Park (very nice). What looked like a windswept corner, when we tied up to it, turned out to be a very nice spot indeed. Glad that we stopped here. And will definitely be doing so again.
