Mrs Swan still sitting tight on her enormous nest
It could still be a few days before the Thames is safe to travel on, so we went down through the lock, turned and back up so we could get up to Pyrford where we could make use of all the services. We then decided to keep going and moored up at Send for the night at a nice quiet spot we used before. It was lovely to be moving again. And to have a full water tank and empty loo!
Waking up we heard a Cuckoo calling, the first one we've heard this year. This morning was grey and wet, so it was a slow start doing a few cleaning jobs, a walk round the village with Jumble then we set off again, we decided to go back to Godalming.
Triggs LockThe river is flowing faster than it was last week and we were going against the flow, so sometimes it was slow progress.
Cherry blossom above Bower LockWe only saw a couple of boats moving, they were making their way to The New Inn at Send ready for Byfleet Boat Club's Weyside 2012 Festival this weekend.
Swifts lining up and swooping round. 1st ones I've seen this year.Through Guildford once again, and at Shalford we just squeezed under the road bridge, with only a mm to spare! Good thing we could creep along against the flow. Coming back we shall have to check level first - 14 bricks on bridge wall!
