Needed to get a pump out today – so back to Molesey lock as they have a pump out station. The pump out charge on the Thames is still £10.. a very good price – and possibly still not enough to cover the maintenance of the machines – but I’m not going to complain (between £16 and £20 at marinas..).
Set off from the lock, back past Hurst Park and on to and though Sunbury Lock. There were a few other boats sharing the lock with us.. Being the royal wedding day.. there are a lot of boats out and about, most decorated with bunting.
The lock crew were having a nice day of it today :
( Could be a re-made carpenters album sleeve that ! 🙂 )
Eventually got through and past the weir and to the mooring. Helpfully.. there were cabin cruisers all spaced out along the mooring – with gaps for other cabin cruisers – but there was no gap big enough for us.. so stuff it.. pulled in at the end – with just enough to get the stern close to the bank so dogs and cats can get on and off – pinned out the bow – through the overgrown foliage.
Tiggy seems to like it here though..
