Yesterday afternoon we said goodbye to Paul and Jacqui, we'll miss the help they have given us.
This morning I took the bike and rode up to where Maplins store is to buy a new set of walkie talkies. I got the last set of the type that I wanted in the store. When I got them home the darn things didn't work. I trogged back and explained that they wouldn't work. The chap tried all sorts to get them going to no avail so I had to have a refund.
We set off from the mooring heading for Blake's Lock and the river Thames. The lock was unmanned so we couldn't buy our Thames licence, then out onto the big river. First port of call was the large Tesco handily placed a few yards from the canal junction, then on westward to Caversham Lock where we were relieved of £128.00 for the privilege of using EA water.
Just past the lock we decided to moor up for the night and have found a nice spot on what looks like parkland just west of Caversham bridge. We had only been here 10 minutes when the heavens opened and one massive thunderstorm struck, so we count ourselves lucky.
we're moored on the south side of the river in this link,-4.064941&sspn=17.256447,46.538086&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Reading,+United+Kingdom&ll=51.468031,-0.990593&spn=0.004431,0.011362&t=h&z=17
