Shiplake to Pangbourne

Approaching Sonning Bridge I called Sue on her walkie talkie to point out the historic post box which it had decreed to be emptied for the working boats' post; to be emptied each day in the summer by postal workers in waders and never less than twice a week by boat in the winter months. All the times NP has been up and down this river they haven't spotted it before.
 We hung back to get a nice shot of NP coming through the bridge but a cruiser shot by and blocked the camera at the optimum angle....doh..
 waiting for the lock to turn
 entrance to the Kennet & Avon - we were meant to do it this summer but we've spent so long fannying about enjoying ourselves that we've run out of time now
 I love these boat houses - if I ever have to live on land .........

 An Alpaca farm
 our moorings  for the night; a bit snug but perfectly fine
