What a Glorianous day!
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.
