The Thames is calling

Only a mile and a half of the Grand Union left to complete and we will be on the Thames tomorrow. A lovely passage time of 1315 in the lock at Brentford.  Just two locks to go through and likely to have travelling companions. Couldn't be better.

The last stretch of the GU to the Hanwell flight was very quiet. The other boats spotted on the way either stopped or turned for the Paddington Arm. BUT, as if by magic, we got to the first lock and there was NB NIGHTJAR, our lock 'buddies' of two days ago. Good lock companions and great chat.  Could NOT have been better.

We hope to be at Hampton Court tomorrow, there or Kingston any road up.
