The walkers kept going all night! I have to admit that they didn’t keep me awake but as I stirred to go to the loo about 4am they were still scrunching past!

As we were approaching Marlow we came across Still Rockin and NoProblem – well we didn’t really come across them as I knew from their blogs where they were. Still Rockin also used Navvygator so I knew exactly where they were. Carol was cooking a roast and the smell coming out the galley was wonderful – just as well we had had lunch. We had a quick natter then set off to Marlow Lock – of course we had missed our turn and had to wait for ages.

We passed the lovely Bisham Abbey which is a Grade I listed manor. The name is taken from the now lost monastery which once stood alongside. It is now one of Sport England's National Sports Centres and is home to a number of National Governing Bodies of Sport.

We also had to wait at Temple Lock for quite a while as it is quite a small lock. We had arranged a mooring at Hurley Lock and found it to be on the lock island beside a picnic area which was lovely.
Once we were at Hurley Lock I was able to phone my friend Jill who has a mobile home there which they live in during the summer. They walked down to the lock and we had tea on the boat before going to Henley for a very nice meal at Weatherspoons. It was then back to Jill and Dave’s mobile home for coffee before they dropped us back off at the lock. I haven’t seen Jill for years so it was really nice to catch up and finally meet Dave! We were so busy talking that I completely forgot to take any photos!
