Left   Marlow at 9.32 for a short cruise to Bourne End. Tony used to come here with his young daughter some forty odd years ago to picnic so it was a trip down Memory Lane for him.

Bourne End Waterfront

We walked along the Thames Path into Bourne End  proper and found the car park next to the Library. Slightly different to Devizes charges!








We found a leaflet at the Iibrary which outlined some historic walks. From this leaflet we found that Enid Blyton lived very close to where we were moored and of course we just had to go and find the house where she had lived from 1929-1939. It was being re thatched so we spent a few minutes watching two guys thatching the gateway to see how it was done.

In the evening there were lots of rowers out practising followed by many many small sailboats


On a very cool and windy Thursday morning we were delighted to see our chums from Two n Six who came and moored alongside. We had a good chat over tea and cake. Thank you for the jam Lin, we are looking forward to opening it!

We were sitting reading after supper when I noticed a young man with a drone, walking past. Tony asked if we could have a photo of Matilda. Thank you Nick Harvey; the photos are truly amazing and much appreciated. He gave his email if you are interested……….
