Paddle Steamer on the Thames
We have seen some wonderful craft on the Thames and plenty of narrowboats.
On arriving at Teddington we awaited 'til the allotted time to enter the tidal Thames and then cruise down through Richmond sluices. We could see the tide had already dropped by several inches. Then into Brentford, almost missing the turn as it angled back from downstream. Good manouvering on Colin's part saw us safely into Thames lock. Then the exciting operation of opening Brentford Gauging Lock and so back onto the canal system. One lock later saw us moored up for the night by a very pretty bridge.
