"What's The Weather Like Today Jim?"

Well, I suppose it was inevitable! We had "liquid sunshine" all day. We did not rust; it takes sun for that!

We cruised from Honey Street, with an early start, so that we could get to Pewsey Wharf to support the Boat Club Save our Waterways blockade of the Kennet and Avon canal. There were about 15 boats. Unfortunately I think the torrential rain put off all but the boaters who, as we know, are mostly a hardy lot. We were provided with hot dogs, cake and tea, which was wonderful.

Michel Ancram MP was good enough to support us. He was at Devizes yesterday where the sun shone and lots of people turned up. I think the Kennet and Avon has really done its bit as there were other events all along the canal too.

We then cruised and winded below Wootton Rivers Bottom Lock. This was our best judgement as the by-wash was very fierce and we felt that going further with all the rain would be daft. So we moored up fairly soon, near the railway but away from trees so I could watch TV and a couple of my favourite Sunday evening programmes! The joys of sattelite dishes on boats!
