We travelled today with the radio perched on the rear hatch listening to the Olympic coverage from Eton Dorney. We cheered and punched the air when our girls got gold! We managed to moor in time to see Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome finish the time trial for gold and bronze.
Today was a day of lots of locks, thirteen in total so I'm feeling a bit tired. I've been very lazy with photos lately, the trouble is the weather has meant I'm reluctant to get my camera out. I must try and get some photos over the next few days, there are lots of flowers in bloom now even if the scenery is unexciting, pleasant but unexceptional.
I'm looking forward to a relaxed evening but as Ray wants to watch the GB men's football match that might not be possible!
