Many of the big old boats were leaving Foxton including these two, Owl and Hampton. We left very early through the short Husbands Bosworth Tunnel only to emerge into a thick mist. It brightened up by the time we moored up just after B58 in a super open spot with views for miles across the countryside, perfick!

After having coffee aboard we walked the mile or so down to Foxton to meet up with Paddy and Ruth who were trading their wonderful wares from their newly extended butty Echoes. As usual the crowds were out enjoying themselves and spending their money. It was good to chat with them, then it was time for a bacon roll and drink from the Top Lock Cafe. We mingled with all the gongoozlers watching the boats in the locks and caught Chertsey about to ascend, Swallow departing under B61 and Dove which came to turn in the basin.
