We've been short hopping our way slowly up the river. Bourne End to Henley. Henley to Shiplake. Shiplake to Reading. Reading to Beale Park.. to Wallingford, where we are tucked up under the welcome shade of some trees. The river is ridiculously busy at weekends. When everyone piles out of their marinas at once, there aren't enough moorings to go around. The lock landings are often so full with boats, that you have to hover about in midstream. thankfully, there hasn't been any current or wind to complicate things. We are hoping to get up beyond Osney bridge soon, where we will leave the large doubledecker boats behind.
