Ever nearer to London

I absolutely love the Thames there is such a diverse range of river craft from the tiniest motor boat to the almost super yachts, and the houseboats are amazing ( good and not so good ). We were surprised and pleased to get a mooring right outside Hampton Court Palace, and had a visit from daughter No1s friend Daniella along with her two sons Jayden and Logan. Had a lovely afternoon wandering round the palace thanks to Daniellas free pass.Having got our days mixed up we left the mooring to get a few miles under our belt and coming off the Thames at Brentford onto the Grand Union was a bit of a shock, so much rubbish everywhere, we did the Hanwell flight ( 6 locks ) at dusk and met some local characters ( some a bit dodgy ) we also passed an old mental asylum ( the internets words not mine) it was so creepy there was no way I was mooring up next to that place.As we now have a day we didn't know we had, an easy day tomorrow I think .......Lou.  Xxx
