What a Glo­ri­anous day!

Canal Boat - - Letters -

THIS YEAR’S CRUIS­ING trip on our nb Nib­lick in­cluded three weeks on the Thames. Due to low wa­ter lev­els many of the weirs were closed, making the flow very be­nign, very dif­fer­ent from the pre­vi­ous two times we have ven­tured on this lovely river.

The high­light of the cruise hap­pened on the ap­proach to Old Wind­sor Lock where we were cheered by par­ties of peo­ple wav­ing Union Flags! To our great sur­prise, di­rectly in front of us us­ing the lock was the Queen’s Barge Glo­ri­ana. We fin­ished up in the flotilla on its way to Run­nymede. A day to re­mem­ber for a long time.

NEIL & JANET MACDONALD, nb Nib­lick
