Bon Voyage to the Kennet and Avon canal

Brian did an excellent job at the tiller, taking the Emily Bronte safely under the notorious high bridge, which is very low and narrow ?! With the strong flow of the river Kennet ,it was more of a sweeping out onto the Thames.
We were greeted by the sign 'stream increasing' posted at the first Thames lock, but this seemed a good birthday type day to break free of the canal, any excuse to crack the bubbly.
Frances is in love ! With her new bike , an early birthday present . Brian didn't need much persuasion to join her for a ride , Jane did though, so was quite happy to stay onboard relaxing in the sunshine at Sonning.
