Warm Weekend 16/18 May

With the uplift in temperature this weekend it's definitely boating weather so we decided that on Friday we would spend the day on the boat and do a short cruise upriver, stopping off at the local riverside pub for a cooling drink. Lunch was taken in Maidstone before a trip to East Farleigh lock, where we turned and headed back to the marina. On arrival back in our berth it was time for afternoon tea and finally ending a lovely day with fish & chips on-board.

Saturday, spent a couple of hours on the boat in the marina before heading to Gatwick (by car) to collect friends from the airport.

Sunday, another really hot day and another cruise on the river, this time with our daughter and her partner. Cruised up to East Farleigh and then back to Maidstone for lunch. Joined later my 'Clevedon Princess' with our friends on board. A few glasses of wine and an ice cream later we set off back to the marina. The river as busy, which it was good to see, and the weather prefect. What more could you ask of a spring weekend.
