Stoking it up on the river

The heat was intense but there was enough wind from the passing of the boat to keep the guests.


The plugs were in as we sailed along, Ben Stokes and Jack Leitch were pulling British cricket back to a high we hadn’t experienced since – last month’s world cup final.

The boat passed smoothly through Hurley lock, Hambledon Lock, Marsh Lock and Shiplake Lock and into the weir pool at Sonning where (as usual) we didn’t spot Goerge Clooney.

We lunched on the bank at Shiplake and very wonderful the lunch was. Home made Falafels and Bhajis, crisp salads, Pimms and juices.

Thanks to Rai and apologies to Raj and his party. We had a double booking.
