Too posh to pick?..,,,,,,,

Lovely lock keepers on these big Thames locks and plenty of boaters who have got a scoobie about what they are doing. We were behind this small cruiser in two locks. It went way over to our left as we moved out of the second. Alistair thought it was to let us pass and put the power on. It then came right across our bow and was probably closer than this. With a weir on our right .... Not nice for us or them.

 We're taking it slowly. Moored at Walton after 5 miles. With a doggie pub that had great write ups yards away we thought....rude not to. Had lovely lunch. Chargrilled Haloumi for me, in preference, to  roast beef and other delights. I just love Halloumi.

I found a lovely off tow path walk for LJ. Didn't see anyone else once we'd left the towpath. 

But I did find a quarter of a mile of  these beauties. They wouldn't still be out there if they were near a canal towpath! Crumble or pie?
