Boaterphobia

Conversation overheard at the bar...
The owner of the French Horn hotel "hates boaters".

He's recently erected three of these signs (along 100m of towpath). There is much ill feeling about it. The assistant manager wanders up and down the thames path every day, ostensibly being nice to your face, but secretly collating information about you. People now universally blank him. Deservedly so, I feel. And I hope boaters will avoid using his establishment in future.

Boaters did not overstay on his land. There was no rubbish strewn everywhere. No late night parties annoying local residents. Just a severe dislike on his part. Sad man.

Sonning Bridge, at 10am this morning.
