9 miles 10 locks
MUCH cooler today, though it was still 20°C at 7:00 am when we set off. It didn’t really change much through the day.
We dropped down Hungerford lock then onto the services to top up the water. While we were watering there was a brief thunderstorm, only about 10 mins. The rest of the day has been mostly cloudy, with some sun, but dry.
We shared all the locks from Kintbury onwards with a lovely, friendly couple on NB Orinoco. We got on really well, and they moored up just in front of us here above the lock in Newbury at about 12:30.
This afternoon was spent, wandering around the shops and doing a few jobs on board.
