On to Marlow

Today we cruised from Runnymede Meadow to a spot on the Thames just past the village of Marlow.  Between the periodic heavy showers the light was spectacular.

Marlow is always a difficult place for us to find a place to moor.  Wanderlust is a little too big and the mooring spots are infrequent.  Eventually we found an idyllic niche in the bank-side bushes upstream of the town.  We  wrapped Wanderlust’s mooring lines around two trees and pulled her to the bank just dodging the bushes.  It would work for the night.  Gigi approved of our spot; she’s always happy when there’s a big grassy field nearby.
